The party shares a common destiny. There's to be no running off on one's own.
The Goddess of Leanbox. Her appearance and demeanor are both noticeably mature, and she carries herself like a nurturing older sister. That being said, she is actually a hardcore gamer and fujoshi at heart. Her room overflows with only the best in otaku goods. Since the Goddesses are finally embarking on a journey in the world of online gaming, her specialty, she's secretly hoping she'll finally have her turn in the limelight as the protagonist. Out of all of the Goddesses, she is the only one without a younger sister. When she finds a girl she likes, she wastes no time in trying to get them to become her sister.
She has chosen the Enchanter class. Her character is great at both recovery and attack skills, and she also is the only one in the party who wields element-bestowing skills.
Vert's adult appearance and overall figure remains the same. However, she is wearing a more elven themed outfit. She has leaves and flowers on her hair as accessories. She wears a short green and white sleeveless silky mini-skirt decorated with a golden leaf and flower pattern. The white in her skirt area is a bit see-through. Below her shoulders are white clothes wrapped elegantly as sleeves. On her right arm is a two bracelets held together by an X. On the left arm and thigh is a plant shaped bracelet. She wears brown boots.
Vert is a very kind and mature woman who often plays the maternal role of the CPUs due to not having a sister herself. she is shown to be very caring to others and very wise, but can also be playful at times as well. She is shown to be the most level headed out of the Goddesses at most times.
Vert logs in to find Neptune, Noire and Blanc already logged in. She apologizes for being the last one here. Neptune greets her and wonders what her outfit and class is. It looks elven.
Vert explains that she is the Enchanter class, the only class to bestow attributes to players depending on the situation. Neptune observes that Noire and Vert have switched the weapons, they wield in real life. Vert notices that everyone did change but with all the balance of their classes, they will be a splendid party.
With the initial dialogue out of the way, Neptune decides to introduce everyone else to the player. While Noire and Blanc are annoyed at Neptune's description of them, Vert is excited as she heard "little sister". Neptune gets worried and tells the girls that this was their imagination. Noire does not buy it. Neptune quickly shifts the party's focus to the tutorial and runs off. Noire chases her.
Vert agrees with Neptune and urges Blanc to get the tutorial started. Vert can't wait to try out the combat system. Vert takes the time to appreciate the fact that while they normally compete they can work together in this game. Vert tells them the party shares a common destiny and no one should go off and solo.
Neptune, Noire and Blanc think Vert is the first to go solo. Vert assures them for this one time, she will not concern herself with rank or completion. She will sincerely explore the world, make new friends and tell others about the game as this is her responsibility of being granted early-access by the 4 Goddesses Online management.
Blanc and Neptune are shocked. Noire respects Vert for her decision. Vert thanks Noire and thinks they should now all enjoy themselves. This episode of 4 Goddesses Online takes place in a different world and the idea of starting at level 1 gets Vert all excited.
At the tutorial event point, a NPC arrives and introduces herself as Bouquet, a guardian spirit, Royal Geist. She is sent by the Goddesses to guide them. Bouquet begins to explain the story of the world but Vert grabs her and embraces her. She asks Bouquet to be her little sister. Bouquet notes that her vision is blocked by the "bouncy bouncy". Noire pulls Vert back.
Blanc can't stand the "bouncy bouncy" remark but she notices that Bouquet reacted in real time to Vert's actions. She wonders how this is possible. Vert thinks it is nice of Blanc to notice as one of the features of this game is an advanced communication AI that can learn. Since this is Planeptune's technology, Noire and Blanc are eager to defend their nation in being better than Planeptune. Vert reminds the girls that the real world is irrelevant.
Bouquet has a nosebleed. She has never experienced the "bouncy bouncy" and notes that they cannot be taken lightly. Neptune scolds Vert for her earlier actions. Vert could not help it as her ideal little sister just appeared. Noire calms Vert down and urges everyone to listen to Bouquet's story.
Bouquet explains that long ago the 4 Goddesses descended from the Divine Realm to an empty world. Purple Heart, the Goddess of Fate, Black Heart, the Goddess of Prosperity, White Heart, the Goddess of Order, and Green Heart, the Goddess of Fertility created Alsgard, home to the World Tree Leanverde aka Tree of Life. That tree is the source of all magic in this world and created all life. 1000 years ago, the Goddesses sealed up the Demon King Jester, who tried to take Leanverde's magic. However, that took a toll of them and Leanverde's restorative magic could not restore the Goddesses. The Goddesses left Sacred Treasures which housed their remaining power and retreated to the Divine Realm to heal.
Before the Goddesses left, they told Bouquet's great great great grandmother, the Royal Geist at the time that "When the world is in danger once again those carrying our blessings shall appear. Grant them the sacred treasures, and call to us. Keep guard of the treasures until that comes". The adventurers before Bouquet are the "Chosen Ones". She requests they gather the Sacred Treasures at Tetyu Temple to revive the 4 Goddesses.
Now that they know the final boss, Blanc wants to know what they have to do first. Bouquet tells them to head to Wishuel, a city just pass this forest, an adventurer's hub. Afterwards, they should head to Cautlprim Cathedral where the 4 Goddesses are worshiped.
Vert understands. Bouquet wishes them all good luck. The forest is to test and train all potential "Chosen Ones". She tells them to learn at their own pace to navigate Alsgard and says her goodbyes. Vert stops Bouquet to ask her if they will meet again. Bouquet explains that her mission is to guide adventurers who can be the "Chosen Ones". If they are the "Chosen Ones", they will meet again in the Cathedral.
Vert is happy to hear that and hopes to deepen their friendship. Bouquet tells Vert to go easy on her. Noire apologizes on behalf of Vert and tells her not to worry about Vert. Vert is sad to leave Bouquet but resigns to meet her eventually in the Cathedral. Neptune tells Bouquet they will see her soon.
The party handles the forest easily. Closer, to the end of the forest, Neptune notes that she is getting the hang of the controls. She wonders if everyone is the same but hears a noise. Neptune wonders what it is. Vert thinks it is the tutorial boss. Neptune thinks there is nothing to fear. Vert assures them that even if they used their bare hands, the boss would fall to them.
The party easily defeats the boss. Vert can't wait to get to Wishuel. In Wishuel, Blanc wants to take a look at the shops. Vert wants to see Bouquet in Cautlprim Cathedral. Blanc is okay with Vert's plan as there is likely an important event first. They can always check out the shop later. Neptune wants them to let her pick what to do.
Vert and Neptune enjoy the atmosphere of Wishuel. Vert is glad Neptune likes it and notes that one must be immersed in the environment to spend many hours in the game. Noire and Blanc think Neptune is becoming addicted to 4 Goddesses Online. It may be too late for Neptune.
Neptune starts to worry that she will end up like Vert. Vert is hurt by the fact everyone thinks it is so bad to be like her. Noire tells Vert to stop with the fake tears. Blanc stops joking around and admits that Wishuel is beautiful and understands how one can pass the time in this game.
Later, Noire wonders what online games everyone has been playing. Neptune has been playing online games largely on her console, not PC. She happily remembers the time she was accused of hacking when she got a rare item as item drops were especially rare in those games. The game ended its services so Neptune is playing the sequel as well as 4 Goddesses Online. Neptune wonders what Blanc has been playing.
Blanc has been playing a MMO based on a well-known RPG. Kids like the game, as it is easy to pick up. However, she is busy with Lowee so she has not logged in for a while. Blanc's plans are to play 4 Goddesses Online now.
Noire is happy that the two play a decent amount.
Neptune plays online games on consoles, Blanc plays a MMO based on a well-known RPG, Noire plays an RPG after it got its remake but all the Goddesses are also play 4 Goddesses Online. Neptune knows it is not worth asking but Vert is playing 4 Goddesses Online. Vert confirms that she is and she also played all the games the other Goddesses mentioned. She even likes World Break Online noting that it was great.
The other Goddesses all remember World Break Online. World Break Online had a error during their maintenance causing all services to end. In addition, the company went under. Vert liked World Break Online as much as 4 Goddesses Online yet only memories remain of that game. Vert can't stand remembering that grim day and wants to return to the previous discussion.
Vert notices that everyone has some gaming experience and if they need any help they can rely on her. Neptune remarks that Vert's glowing face coupled with her previous statement makes her look like a Goddess. Vert reminds Neptune that she is a Goddess. Neptune says it was just a figure of speech but she will lean on Vert. Vert is happy to let Neptune lean on her but she tells Neptune she will not carry her. Blanc is relieved to have Vert in their party, she can take her time to get used to the game.
Vert tells them getting experience is in gaming is important. Eventually the should naturally acquire the ability to play for 96 hours straight. Noire reminds Vert that is 4 days and asks how does one "naturally acquire" the ability to do that. Blanc thinks one would fall asleep half way at most. Vert explains that ignoring rest is a basic requirement for online gaming and she can last 4 days with the help of special drinks. Neptune warns the audience to not try anything Vert is suggesting.
At the 4th night, Vert wonders if her real self is in the game and if her real self is just a virtual avatar. Noire wonders what happens to people like Vert when games like World Break Online end. Blanc has heard about people staging protests outside the game company demanding that the game be kept online. Neptune finds that ridiculous as all they need to do is start over in another game. Vert urges them to avoid that topic.
Near a bulletin board, Vert explains that one can request or search for parties, ask for strategies and tips and chat. One can greatly expand their world. Noire thinks they should try to use it to their advantage. Neptune remarks that with this board, even a lonely Noire can make 100 friends. Noire demands Neptune take that back and chases her down. Blanc sighs and notes that Noire always loses her cool. Vert tells Blanc that the online community can be coarse and Blanc should build some resistance to instigation. Blanc angrily agrees but asks Vert who has been instigating her all this time.
Afterwards, the party heads into the Cathedral. Vert is awe. Neptune points out the statue of the 4 Goddesses. Neptune and Noire prefer the Goddess that were based on them. Blanc think White Heart is just lovely and inspiring praising the designer for fantastic taste. Vert tells Blanc if she wants inspiration, she should look at Green Heart's figure. One can get inspired by her voluptuousness. Blanc angrily asks why Vert is singling her out.
Noire remarks that the people here definitely worship the Goddesses. Bouquet appears and welcomes the Chosen Ones to Cautlprim Cathedral. Vert is overjoyed to see Bouquet and embraces her. Vert thinks their names sound sisterly and wonder if they were separated at birth. Bouquet thinks the "bouncy bouncy" feels softer and has a nosebleed.
Noire pulls Vert away from Bouquet while Blanc heals Bouquet's nosebleed. Bouquet explains that to save the world, they need to awaken the four Goddesses. Vert agrees that they need the power of the Goddesses to defeat the Demon King. Neptune wonders why the Goddesses don't just return on their own. They should know that their world needs them.
Bouquet tells Neptune she was going to get to that part. The Goddesses exhaust a great deal of their strength to come to Alsgard. Normally Leanverde would restore them but the damage they sustained from the Demon King could not be healed by Leanverde. They had to return to the Divine Realm but the Demon King cursed them to be unable to wake up if they returned to the Divine Realm.
They need to gather the Sacred Treasures to build a rainbow bridge to the Divine Realm to awaken the 4 Goddesses. The Sacred Treasures, they need are the Amethyst Glass, Black Diamond Sword, Moonstone Hairpin and Emerald Mirror. Those treasures are sealed to prevent misuse and only the Chosen Ones should release the seal. Unfortunately, a powerful dark magic broke the seal and 2 of the Sacred Treasures ended up in the hands of the followers of the Demon King. The alliance of Paladins and Black Knights are attempting to retrieve the treasures but are having difficulty fighting the strong monsters.
Neptune asks for the location of the two treasures that are not stolen. Bouquet tells her they are in Logi Mountain and Yiear Forest. Noire wants to go to any one of the two as they are certain to get a Sacred Treasure. Vert chooses Logi Mountain. Blanc asks Vert for her reasons. When Vert hears a mountain, she must climb it. That is what her heart says as well as that is the recommended level progression. Neptune wonders if Vert just has a feeling that there are rare items there. Vert tries to deny that and they should focus on saving Bouquet and this world. Once they get the Sacred Treasures Vert can have her union with Bouquet and all the Goddesses.
Bouquet anxiously wonders what sort of bouncy fate awaits her. Blanc finds all of this ridiculous and hopes Vert is not a bad influence on the AI. Noire promises to control Vert so Bouquet does not have to worry and would appreciate her advice along their adventure. Bouquet accepts Noire's offer and looks forward to their next meeting. Vert notes that a little sister is like an elusive shadow. The more she chases her, the more she flees. Perhaps she should try drawing her in. She decides to pray in the Cathedral so her feelings will reach Bouquet.
The party heads over to Logi Mountain. Vert promises to support the party with all her gaming instincts. Neptune is glad to have a reliable game junkie in their party. Vert urges the party to get going and acquire the first Sacred Treasure.
Near the end of the dungeon, Neptune wonders if this is the place Bouquet mentioned. Bouquet appears and is glad they made it all the way safely. Vert is glad to see Bouquet and embraces her. Bouquet struggles and tries to tell Vert she wanted to tell her for a long time. Vert embracing Bouquet is rather embarrassing for her. Vert thinks that is nonsense as they are sisters and wants to spoil her more. Bouquet notes that when she is surrounded by the bouncy, her head fuzzy as if she was hypnotized.
Blanc notes that Vert stated that they were sisters like fact. Noire notes that Bouquet seems to be warming up to Vert and asks if she is okay. Bouquet returns to her senses and points them to a small shrine. Neptune notices a monument in it. Bouquet explains that they need to write a spell to the monument to get the Sacred Treasure, Amethyst Glass. Neptune realizes that they need a password so she decides to enter in "pudding is the best thing in the world". Vert tries "My adorable little sisters, Nepgear and Bouquet hehehehehehehe". Noire tells the two to stop. She knows this goes against their characters but they should take this seriously for once-. Neptune and Vert get the Amethyst Glass.
Bouquet congratulates them and now the two of them have the power of the Awakening. Blanc cannot believe that is the password. Bouquet explains the game is still in beta therefore the password for the monument is not implemented and any password works. Neptune knows it is word coming from her but Bouquet should not be breaking the fourth wall.
Bouquet tells them to treat as if it was a notice from the administrator. This game is a beta so to test her learning capabilities, she has no filters against her speech except for confidential and banned terms. When the game is released, her speech will likely be restricted to not break player immersion. Vert is concerned and wonders if this is the only time to talk to Bouquet's true self and if she will forget about the time they spent together. Bouquet does not know if her memories will be erased and believes that is dependent on adventurers like them.
Neptune agrees and remembers a story about how an AI learned strange things then had to be frozen. She tells everyone to not teach Bouquet weird things. Vert tells her not to worry as she will protect the memories with her life. Her love for Bouquet will overcome all obstacles.
Blanc decides to enter "Password" to the monument. Noire decides to enter a password which is Lastation's birthday and 123. Noire and Blanc also receive the Amethyst Glass.
Since the mission is accomplished Vert wants to spend some quality private time with Bouquet. Bouquet asks her to do something not overwhelming. Vert is glad she is accepted and decides to play tag. She asks Bouquet to chase her. Bouquet tells her to wait and chases her.
The party returns to Wishuel. Noire receives a message from Uni. She is playing the 4 Goddesses Online Beta as well. Vert notes that only high ranking players from 4 Goddesses Online can get keys. If she is high ranking, Vert would like to invite Uni to her guild. Noire tells her that Uni is not interested in these types of games. She likes FPS games which means she got her key from... Neptune says it was Nepgear, her little sister that won the keys from a prize. She gave Uni, Rom and Ram and they are all playing together.
Vert cannot believe that they are all in this world right now. She wants to meet up with them immediately. Noire reports that they already got the first Sacred Treasure and are returning to Wishuel. Blanc thinks they should wait in the plaza for the candidates' return. Vert can't wait for her lovely Nepgear. Neptune thinks it's nice that Vert likes Nepgear but she is her little sister and tells Vert not to forget that.
Later, the candidates return. Neptune is about to start up a conversation with her sister. Vert wants to introduce the audience to her little sister, Nepgear and embraces her. Nepgear tells Vert to stop squishing her so hard but notes that this does feel warm. Neptune notes that Nepgear has been afflicted with a status effect and complains that Vert already has Bouquet.
Vert explains that she is an adult woman and can have as many little sisters as need be. Besides Blanc has two little sisters despite... and glances at Blanc. Blanc gets annoyed and reminds her that chest size has nothing to do with having little sisters. Vert wonders why Blanc is taking about chest size. She has never mentioned anything about that. Blanc is able to lash out at Vert until Rom and Ram stop her. Vert is glad that their party has doubled. Nepgear thinks they will have twice the fun.
Now that the party has expanded thanks to the candidates Vert wants to name the party. Nepgear wonders what it should be and suggests everyone spout whatever comes to mind.
Neptune wants "Goddess Communications". Noire does not hate it but fears it is too long. She suggests "Goddess Talk". Neptune tells Noire if she is going to change it that little, they may as well keep her suggestion. Blanc wants something more related to Gamindustri. She suggests "8 Bit" as there are 8 of them. Vert does not hate the idea but what if their group grows. Nepgear suggests EXE Drivers but thinks it may be too flashy. Uni would use the words "Platoon" or "Army" then squish them with other words but that is just weird with just 8 of them. Ram thinks since they are all Goddesses, they should go with "The Goddesses". Rom agrees and also suggests going for "The Guardian Goddesses".
Neptune thinks its cute but might be too long. She wonders if there is another way to word it. Vert remembers that in Gamindustri, they are called Console Patron Unit, so suggests "CPU". Uni likes the abbreviation. Noire is happy as they are Goddesses so this suits them. Blanc likes that its short, easy to remember with a "classic-game" feel. Ram and Rom are happy that it is easy to remember. Nepgear notices that no one is objecting and likes the name as well. Neptune declares that their party will now be known as "CPU". Vert thought they would argue more about this but is glad they settled it.
CPU then takes the Certification quest at Logi Mountain. In Logi Mountain, Neptune tries to jump to a foothold to climb higher. Noire, Blanc and Vert are displeased with this. Blanc wonders if it is okay for Neptune to fall from this high. Vert notes that they will not take damage but it will be a nuisance to climb back up again. Neptune tells them not to worry as she is confident in her platforming skills and promptly proceeds to fall off. Even if this is a game, Vert is glad she did not land on someone's head.
CPU finishes the Certification quest and returns to Wishuel. Now that their strength has gone up Vert advises them to think about party reorganization before searching for other Sacred Treasures. Nepgear notices that Vert has been rather enthusiastic about completing this game. Neptune explains that she has been targeting Bouquet, a cute little girl as her sister. That being said, Neptune claims she is still the protagonist of this game, which is called "Cyberdimension Neptunia" not "Vertia".
All that aside, Nepgear is glad to have Vert in CPU. They can all learn something about gaming from her. Vert is happy to help and tells Nepgear to not be afraid to ask for help in this game. Nepgear accepts her offer as she has never tried a Mage class and she will take any advice on using it. Vert knows Bouquet is lovely but Nepgear is just too adorable.
Neptune, Noire, Uni, Rom and Ram have a conversation to the side regarding love polygons in relation to CPU.
Vert believes the party should balanced according to the skills and expertise of each player. Noire is upset Vert would shift the topic away the moment she starts contributing. After the party reorganization, Neptune thinks they should look for the next Sacred Treasure.
In Wishuel, a mysterious person appears trying to sell rare items to Vert. Vert is interested and asks if it is something like a Zodiac weapon. The mysterious person says it is nothing so ordinary, it appeals to one's carnal desires. Vert starts to fantasize. The mysterious person is glad to have Vert's interest. Vert excitedly asks if the mysterious person sells pictures of Bouquet sleeping, in a swimsuit or a Bouquet's system voice files.
The mysterious person is shocked by her excitement and clarifies that she does not have something so niche. Vert takes offense to the claim that Bouquet is niche. It should be ac common angel for all to have a cute little sister. In fact Bouquet is an angel. Vert has nothing to say to someone who does not understand that and leaves.
Phiaros runs into CPU. He is happy to see them. Neptune wonders if they met this NPC before. He explains that he guards the holy Yiear Forest. He needs to request something of them, the Sacred Treasure, Black Diamond Sword has been taken by the forces of the Demon King. Phiaros asks them to retrieve all the Sacred Treasures and revive the Goddesses. He already put the request at the guild.
Since it is official, Neptune is happy to accept the quest. In the guild, they accept the request. Vert reads that this quest is in Yiear Forest. The Goddesses begin to squabble over who is going to be the most useful for this quest. Vert thinks her ability to use a sword and magic equally for any situation will make her most useful.
In Yiear Forest, Uni stops and alerts her sister to something. It is a couple of players. Since there are here, Nepgear suggests talking to them. Vert agrees.
Nepgear shows up and greets them. Kiria cuts her off stating there is no time for her and urges the princess to go ahead. The princess knows it is dangerous but relies on Kiria's protection. Kiria promises to wash away her sadness and take her pain. The two leave.
Vert thinks they were rather cheesy and expresses her displeasure for using that word to describe them, though it would be the most accurate. Blanc notes that the couple were in their own little world. They might as well have ignored them completely. Even so, Vert thought they were making the most progress in this game.
Near the end of the forest, the princess notes that CPU took their sweet time. Vert thought they were lucky and passed the couple but they got here first. Kiria brags that they didn't just get here first, the two of them defeated the boss and they have the Sacred Treasure as proof. Neptune and Vert are shocked. The princess thanks Kiria for her hard work and making her happy. She wants to reward her for her faithful service and asks what she wants.
As her faithful servant, Kiria says her words eternally reward her soul. The princess just loves how Kiria is. Kiria promises to be with the princess forever. The princess wants to go back to shop. Kiria asks to be her escort back. The princess agrees.
Vert wonders what that was all about. Here she was intending to challenge the boss together but all they did was laugh and leave. Blanc tells Vert not to think too hard about it. Vert knows there is no point in competing with them in terms of progress but this does not sit right with her.
CPU enters the end of the dungeon. CPU sees the boss and is eager to defeat it. Vert is happy with the party's spirit and the party defeats the boss.
CPU gets the Sacred Treasure, Black Diamond Sword. Bouquet appears and congratulates them on their successful retrieval of the Sacred Treasure. Vert is glad to see Bouquet. Seeing her removes all of Vert's fatigue from fighting the boss. Bouquet thanks them all for their hard work and she has something to tell them but... Blanc wonders if Bouquet is okay. Bouquet apologizes as even if this is a holy forest, the monsters' impurities are affecting her. Vert notices that Bouquet's face is flushed and she seems to be in pain as well. She as the older sister wants to nurse Bouquet as nursing scenes are essential to any game.
Bouquet wonders what nursing scenes and decides to research it. Neptune thinks Bouquet is too wobbly for that and tells her to hold it off until she recovers. Then she can study all the silly things she wants. Vert wants to return to the city and asks Bouquet to hold on to her. Alternatively, Vert offers to carry her bridal style.
Bouquet has teleportation magic so she will return to the Cathedral herself. Maybe the Goddesses' protection will remove her impurities and she will feel better. Bouquet promises to talk to them there and she teleports away. CPU returns to Wishuel.
In Wishuel, Vert wonders if Bouquet was able to return to the city. She is worried. Blanc wonders if they should head for the Cathedral for now. Neptune says that she has an errand and tells them to go on without her.
Later, Neptune runs into Vert and is glad by her timing. She asks Vert if Bouquet is back in the Cathedral. Vert says that she is in the Cathedral and she seems okay but needs rest. Vert thinks they should work on their own and asks if Neptune is done her errand. Neptune is and she shows her the Potion of Protection. She wants to give it to Bouquet. Vert is surprised that Neptune could get such an expensive potion. They should get this to Bouquet immediately. Neptune explains that Compa gave her the potion and she would like to go with Vert to Bouquet to give her the potion. Vert agrees but since Bouquet may be asleep so she asks Neptune to do her best to be quiet.
In the Cathedral, Bouquet is surprised Vert and Neptune. Vert shows Bouquet the medicine they brought. Vert explains that Neptune got this from Compa and this should make Bouquet feel better.
Bouquet thanks them and drinks the medicine. Bouquet is moved that they would do this for her and does not know how to thank them. As a candidate for older sister, Vert tells her not to worry and asks Bouquet to rely on her more. She will accept any selfish request from her younger sister. Bouquet couldn't possibly trouble her with that and her one wish is to fulfill her mission but she is happy. They are a strange bunch to go so far for a lowly NPC. Bouquet gets sleepy.
Vert notices this and tells Bouquet to get some rest. Bouquet goes to sleep. Neptune is impressed that Vert can act so natural as an older sister. She might be getting an identity crisis. Neptune wants to contribute as an older sister as well. She decides to sing a lullaby. First, Neptune needs to warm up her vocal cords. Vert tells her there is no need. If Neptune does anything to disturb her younger sister, Vert will not forgive her. Bouquet snores soundly.
Later, the remaining party arrives to see Bouquet in the city. Vert reports that she has finished the nursing event. The remaining members of CPU went out to gather gifts to help Bouquet. Bouquet is grateful for everything CPU has done for her.
To Vert, seeing Bouquet regain her strength is enough to calm the storm in her heart. She is grateful that Bouquet is feeling better. Uni is amazed that Vert can actually care for someone else. She thought Vert would just do that thing she always does when she finds someone she likes. Vert smirks and wonders what thing is Uni is talking about before hugging her and smothering her with her chest. Uni is shocked. Noire tells Vert not to take advantage of strange moments like these and to unhand her sister.
Vert thinks this moment isn't strange at all. It should be normal for an older sister to dote on her younger sister. Uni finds this really embarrassing and begins to understand what Bouquet has to go through. Bouquet does not want to interrupt but she asks if having a younger sister is all that important. Vert says it is as she is the only one without a sibling of her own. In addition, in Gamindustri, moe is still heavily trending so everyone wants a younger sister by their side.
The Lowee and Planeptune sisters offer their thoughts on younger sisters as well. Bouquet finishes her learning on that topic and records that segment in her archives. Anyways Bouquet would like to begin to explain the legend surrounding the Sacred Treasures.
The Demon King commands a duo of unrivaled leaders known as the Paramount Pair. They both lead the king's army of monsters known as the Wicked Believers. The king and his army went on a rampage that brought Alsgard to the brink of destruction. The four Goddesses fought against them but the battles were a constant struggle. The Goddesses created the Sacred Treasures and amplified their power in order to seal the king, which depleted all their power making them unable to descend to this world.
Vert notes that the Demon King and Paramount Pair are new bosses and not in the main Four Goddesses Online series. Noire asks if their plan is for the Paramount Pair to gather their forces to revive the Demon King while the Goddesses are still away. Bouquet confirms Noire's assumption. Vert's heart races at hearing at the new bosses. She promises to play in earnest from now on.
Bouquet warns that if the Demon King is revived with his full power, defeating him will be difficult. She urges them to gather the Sacred Treasure before all that can happen. Vert tells Bouquet not to worry, with her 5 younger sisters and 3 pleasant companions, they will save this world. The three other Goddesses are annoyed by what Vert has just said.
Vert tells them not to worry about the details and they should try to save the world at full speed. Neptune is happy to continue. Bouquet believes they will succeed.
CPU visits the guild. Luke, the person who runs the guild praises CPU for their timing as an important quest was just posted. It is the quest to find another Sacred Treasure. Luke explains the quest came from a report from an archeological team when they returned from the ruins. Vert asks if that means they found the Sacred Treasure.
Luke adds that while they were excavating in Oneiro Corridor, they stumbled into the boss monster who took the Sacred Treasure. The monsters nearby are also obstructing the excavation so they thought of asking adventurers to defeat the monsters and boss in one go. The researchers promise to not claim the Sacred Treasure. Their desire is for the Chosen Ones to wield it.
Rom asks Blanc what is archaeology. Blanc explains that it is a science where people search for ancient objects in order to understand how people used to live their lives. For example, Lowee has old castles and pipes. Ram understands as archaeologists search for old coins and fossilized mushrooms in those. Rom's eyes sparkle as she wonders if there are old coins in these ruins.
Vert finds this adorable. Vert also wants to have a study session with Bouquet one day in the ruins but she'll hold those thoughts close to her heart. Vert then says if there is a research team, then there must be treasures in these ruins. Vert wants Uni to search the ruins with her for that. Nepgear is ready to accept the quest but notices that there is also a delivery quest for the research team. She wonders if that means they should give the research team some items that aren't the treasure.
Vert thinks they should only do so when absolutely necessary, otherwise they know what to do with their items. Luke tells them he is not trying to tell them how to do their quests but the researchers aren't just going to get nothing.
In the dungeon, Neptune sees the couple again and decides to greet them. She remembers that they haven't introduced themselves yet. Neptune introduces herself but she realizes that it doesn't matter as players can see each other screens. Neptune reads Kiria and †Black Cat Princess†'s name. Vert tells Neptune that the symbols in the princess' name are not crosses but daggers. They are only decorations so Neptune does not need to pronounce them.
Kiria notices that CPU uses the name of the Goddesses of Gamindustri. †Black Cat Princess† also notices that their appearances are the same. She asks if they are impersonating them.
The four Goddesses decide to discuss this between themselves. Neptune wonders if they should hide their identities. Blanc thinks that is hardly worth answering as anyone would doubt they are actually the real Goddesses even if they said they were. Noire wonders what Vert is doing in this game with her name. Wasn't she was going by Green Heart or something in the other game.
Vert admits she was playing as †Green_Heart† but she often dodged the question of her real identity. Blanc notes that she did not set a good example considering that she used symbols in her name. Vert explains that at the time she created the character, she was afflicted with the urge to surround her names with symbols. This is not the case anymore.
†Black Cat Princess† is amused that CPU even imitates the way the Goddesses talk but she notes they need more research to roleplay as them. FKiria notes for instance, there are rumors that Lady Vert is a online game junkie but there is no way for someone so busy to be playing so many games. Vert explains that it is a simple task for a Goddess to balance work and play. Kiria and †Black Cat Princess† continue to point out the differences between the Goddesses and their real selves until Noire asks if the two of them actually met the real Goddesses. They have not.
Kiria apologizes but asks CPU to let the two of them to go. They are a bit busy. Vert tells her there is no need to rush and asks the couple humor them a little. Vert wants to consult something with them. Kiria wonders what this is about. Vert explains that in terms of story progression, the group here is the furthest ahead. The next time a difficult quest appears, they should work together.
Kiria thinks this is a foolish question as she has no intention of wielding this sword for anyone but the princess. †Black Cat Princess† finds this a wonderful suggestion. CPU does look strong especially Vert the Enchanter. †Black Cat Princess† wants to be her younger sister. Vert is shocked. †Black Cat Princess† tells her she will be admiring her from the shadows so if she could look out for her... Vert tells †Black Cat Princess† this is a little too sudden. †Black Cat Princess† implores Vert.
Noire finds it good that Vert actually has a younger sister looking for her. Blanc tells her that is right and wonders why Vert is so shaken. Neptune is glad that Vert won't claim Nepgear anymore. Vert notes that the Goddesses are finding all of this amusing and protests as being an older sister is different from being just sisters. †Black Cat Princess† pleads with Vert not to say such terrible things. She wants Vert to spoil her like a real younger sister. Luckily Kiria was able to convince †Black Cat Princess† to allow herself to be her only protector. †Black Cat Princess† apologizes for being unable to work together. Vert understands.
Kiria notices that the two of them have stayed for too long and they must hurry to the boss as soon as possible. †Black Cat Princess† says her goodbyes to everyone and the two leave. Vert notes that Kiria and †Black Cat Princess† have a playful side to them but she doesn't understand them. That aside, people using princess in their name is likely a housewife or a man.
At the end of the dungeon, Kiria and †Black Cat Princess† are being chased by the boss. Neptune suggests that they allow CPU to defeat the boss so they can all get the Sacred Treasure. Kiria does not want them to steal their kill as they already weakened it significantly. †Black Cat Princess† agrees even if its them, she cannot allow them to take this from them. Vert assures them that they would never steal a kill. At this rate, the two of them would pass out and it would be advantageous for them to work together. They reluctantly accept CPU's help.
CPU defeats the boss and everyone acquires the Moonstone Hairpin. Vert is glad to have retrieved the stolen treasure. Vert finds this fancy that it is hairpin and is disappointed in the fact that they can't actually equip it. †Black Cat Princess† is upset that even the final strike was taken from them. Kiria apologizes but that just angers †Black Cat Princess† even further. She lashes out at Kiria and accuses CPU of gloating therefore being horrible people before leaving. Kiria follows after her.
Bouquet appears and Vert is excited to see her. Bouquet praises everyone for the work. There is only one Sacred Treasure left. It is in the oldest and most sacred place in the world. Blanc asks if it is in the Altar of the Goddesses. Bouquet tells her it is not but it is a good guess.
Since it is not in the Altar, Neptune wonders if there are any other important looking buildings on the world map that they may have missed. Alternatively, it could just be unlocked now since they have progressed so far. Vert has no idea and asks Bouquet where it is. Bouquet tells them the resting place of the final Sacred Treasure is on the foot of the World Tree, Leanverde.
CPU enters the guild to accept a quest in Yiear Sea of Trees for the final Sacred Treasure. They overhear some players, Naoya, Maron and Wildcat discussing the Grim Reaper. Naoya reports that it has happened again, someone walking alone in a dungeon was insta-killed by the boss. Maron thinks it was just a newbie going into a high level dungeon. Naoya explains that it took place in the first mountain dungeon. No one knows where the Grim Reaper will strike.
Maron wonders if some newbie killing raid boss was implemented recently. She wonders what it looks like. Wildcat explains that the Grim Reaper is draped in black and has eyes, red eyes. Looking into it is looking into death itself. The Grim Reaper creeps up on you without making a sound and by the time you notice him, you're already dead. Maron was planning to gather materials but now she is too scared.
Vert is eager to try her skills against a boss that kill players instantly. For now, Neptune decides to accept the quest and CPU heads out.
In Yiear Sea of Trees, Blanc reads from the game description that Leanverde was the first thing the Goddesses created in this world. Vert adds that in this world, the story has it so that magical energy radiates from this place. This is where the final Sacred Treasure is and Noire is excited to meet the Goddesses. Vert notes according to the Guild member, there are powerful monsters here and tells everyone not to let their guard down.
Deeper in the dungeon, Neptune has found the boss and urges CPU to take down the boss and get the Sacred Treasure. She encourages everyone to Nep'Em up. Unfortunately, their attacks are not worker and the boss is beating them.
A NPC Elmia arrives. She warns them that they are not going to make it out at this rate. She urges them to hurry and get out while they still can. Neptune thinks they may have missed an event that makes this boss beatable. Vert thinks that is plausible and notes that it has been quite some time that something has given her such a scare. Elmia tells them they can talk after, for now she will use this. The boss backs off. Neptune does not know what is going on but she urges everyone to retreat.
After getting away, Elmia is glad she made it in time. Ever since the Sacred Treasure was taken, the monsters in the area have become really strong especially that boss holding the Sacred Treasure. If it starts rampaging for real then no one can stop it. However, if they had a high-grade Purification Arrow, they might be able to weaken it. She is sure the Chosen One can defeat it after that. Elmia notes that it would be good to post that to the guild but she had to keep weird mercenaries from getting close.
Elmia decides to head to the guild and warns everyone that this place is dangerous and urges everyone to be careful. Vert notes that they need to return to the city to accept the quest and once they have regrouped- The boss has caught up to CPU. Since they do not have the flags raised to fight this boss, Blanc urges them to run away.
Kiria and †Black Cat Princess† arrives. Kiria notes that they meet again. †Black Cat Princess† laughs and remarks that they are in a pickle. Vert tells the couple to be careful that the boss does not wipe them out. It is a quite a difficult event. Kiria laughs and cannot believe that she will be wiped out. †Black Cat Princess† also laughs. Kiria tells them to sit back and watch this round. †Black Cat Princess† tells them those that stand in their way will end up like this. The two make short work of the boss.
Kiria reports that they have obtained the Sacred Treasure. The two of them will be going on ahead. †Black Cat Princess† laughs and leaves them with a parting gift. Another boss appears. Vert wonders what is with that boss, and makes sure no one broke a branch. Neptune wonders why Vert would mention breaking branches, unless she meant summoning that boss, in which case such an item doesn't exist yet, at least she never saw it. Vert thinks they should just focus on the boss for now. CPU defeats the boss.
Bouquet appears and notes that something abnormal is going on with this floor's data. She asks if everything is okay. She realizes that its CPU and greets them kindly. Vert is glad to see her and guesses Bouquet is here as AI must check for bugs in the beta. Bouquet analyzes the data immediately to find the cause. After the analysis, Bouquet has no results. She does not know of the cause. Neptune complains that Bouquet has to break down now of all times. Vert tells Neptune that is not the case, patrolling around is not Bouquet's job. Bouquet confirms this, her job does include compiling a report as soon as she encounters an error. This is all very strange and Bouquet urges them to return to the city at once.
As they venture deeper into the dungeon, they see the same boss as multiple monsters. Neptune thinks that can't be right as they are heading back. Vert thinks it may the anomaly that Bouquet reported. They could fight them off. Blanc thinks that would be a useless battle. Vert leaves the decision up to Neptune.
Near the end of the dungeon, Bouquet reports that while travelling with CPU back to the city, she checked the library with the error but it was too large to load. She wants to report this to the GM so they check this out. She asks if that is okay. Vert is glad that she would as that would be much more reliable than just submitting an error report and thanks Bouquet. Bouquet asks them for to wait a moment and in place of Bouquet, the GM appears.
GM introduces herself as the 4 Goddesses Online Admin, and they may refer to her as Game Master or GM. GM thanks CPU for their help in the beta test and she explains that she has determined by the report that this error is urgent. She decided to see it for herself. Vert is pleased at the opportunity to meet an admin. She tells her she is a huge fan of 4 Goddesses Online and is looking forward to the implementation of the new version. Vert asks her to do her best. GM is thankful for her words and she begins to perform an analysis.
She announces to those logged in that in approximately 10 minutes, she will perform an emergency maintenance in the Yiear Sea of Trees area. She asks the players to avoid entering Yiear Sea of Trees for the duration of the maintenance. She apologizes for the inconvenience and thanks everyone for their cooperation. GM then personally apologizes to CPU that it would take some time until the end of the maintenance. Vert says she will continue to support the GM. GM thanks everyone.
Bouquet returns and explains that the story quest is now available. It takes place in another area so they should have no trouble progressing. To create the item to weaken the boss requires 3 ingredients. They should first head to the guild and accept the quest. CPU does just that.
After going to the guild, CPU accepts the quest to get the first of the three ingredients required to weaken the final Sacred Treasure boss. It takes place in Arodie Cavern. After collecting all the items for the quest, they return to the guild.
Back at the guild, CPU overhears Minor Players A and B discuss the Grim Reaper. Minor Player A got killed by the Grim Reaper. There was corrupted text so he couldn't read anything. Minor Player B thinks it is a shame as the two were starting to do well, they were sent back to the city. They have to fight the boss again and when they were defeated, their display went all weird for a moment. It was pretty spooky.
CPU takes the next quest for the ingredients. They are to hunt a Volcerios in Fiyar Mines for the ingredient, Shining Dragon Stone. A newbie player warns Neptune and Noire about to stay away from dungeons for a while. The rumor about the Grim Reaper is real. Neptune is interested and wants to know if he saw it. The newbie player has not seen it and since his level is low, he is just trying to level up in areas where it is less likely to appear.
In Fiyar Mines, Noire comments on the Grim Reaper being unsettling. Neptune thought Noire did not believe in occultish things. Noire does not but players seem to be struggling with this. She can't help but feel worried about this. Vert is also worried about the boss, but for now, they have to defeat the target monster and complete the quest.
Deeper in the dungeon, Uni notices the target monster. CPU defeats the target monster and acquires the Shining Dragon Stone. Vert notes that they can return to the guild now, or continue the quest in one go. She will leave the decision up to Neptune.
CPU takes the final quest to get the ingredient to create the Purification Arrow. They are to defeat a target monster in Hestie Crater. In the middle of the dungeon, Nepgear asks the other members what would happen if they were to run into the Grim Reaper. Would they be able to handle now as they are?
Neptune thinks if they can't beat him, they can run away. Even if they lose, they only get sent back to town so it is no big deal. Since the rumors have spread so far, Vert wants to defeat it if they were run into it. Later, CPU finds the target monster for the quest and beats it completing the quest then heads back to Wishuel.
Back in Wishuel, CPU reports their quest acquiring the Branch of Leanverde. Since they have all the ingredients Neptune reports that they only need to get the Purification Arrow. Noire thinks they should create the arrow first and if they are lucky the maintenance period should end. They should talk to Compa about this. Vert agrees with Noire as no one in their party is able to mix ingredients. It is a staple of online gaming to get help from other players.
Neptune returns to CPU in the middle of Wishuel with a newly made Purification Arrow. The GM then announces "This is a notice to all logged in players. The maintenance that was being conducted in Yiear Sea of Trees has safely concluded. Thank you for your co-operation." Neptune finds this perfect timing. Vert agrees and wants to hurry to Yiear Sea of Trees but first they should visit Bouquet. Neptune agrees and CPU heads to the Cathedral.
In the Cathedral, Vert spots Bouquet and is glad to see her again. Bouquet is glad to see Vert but she notes that she is working right now. Noire reports the rumors of the Grim Reaper instantly killing players and asks if Bouquet knows about that. Bouquet does and the GM has already received reports on it. Her investigations has not caught up to the Grim Reaper yet and she apologizes for continued inconvenience. On behalf of the administration Bouquet also apologizes.
CPU tells Bouquet to not to worry. They are always here to help and Bouquet should not hesitate to ask them for help. Bouquet thanks them for their concern and returning to the story, the last treasure is the Emerald Mirror. Should they acquire it, the Goddesses will soon return. The monsters are sure to guard it desperately. Something unexpected might happen.
Uni is looking forward to that sort of thrill. Ram will do her best as well as they can take care of any monsters. Rom is determined as they all came here together so they will be okay. Vert agrees as no matter what powerful enemy appears, they will safely retrieve the final Sacred Treasure. And when that final battle is over, Vert wants to go on a date with Bouquet. Bouquet is shocked. Neptune warns Vert that she is setting up a death flag. Blanc thinks her final words be along the lines of "I'll go check on the forest". Noire asks Bouquet not to make a salad in celebration of the Goddesses' return.
Vert asks the other Goddesses who do they think she is. They will get the Sacred Treasure safely and as sisters, Bouquet and her will go on a date. Bouquet stutters as she clarifies what Vert means by a date is something where they walk together, go shopping, eat out and be loveydovey. Vert confirms that is what she means and asks Bouquet if she willing to do that. Bouquet continues to stutter as she admits it sounds like fun but she has never been on a date before. She feels it is too soon for her.
Vert assures Bouquet as her escort, she will have no problems at all. Vert will wait for Bouquet's response. Bouquet will think about it. The other Goddesses also want to hang out with Bouquet at some point. Bouquet asks if that means everyone is requesting a date. At this rate, she might get an overflow error and brain begins to sizzle.
Noire asks if she is okay. If Bouquet went out on a date in this situation, she might pass out again. Blanc is most worried about her going out with Vert. Vert snickers as she has something to look forward to. She will break any death flag in half and do her best.
In Yiear Sea of Trees, Neptune wonders if getting the Sacred Treasure will mean that they will finish this episode. Noire and Blanc convince Neptune that the game will likely begin after they get the Sacred Treasures. Vert is glad that everyone understands and she too believes that the true game will begin once the Goddesses return.
Later in the dungeon, Vert points out that it seems like it has arrived. This time, they will defeat it. Neptune notes that as usual it looks super strong but they won't run. Neptune decides to use the Purification Arrow and the boss screams in pain. Neptune thinks it is working and believes they can defeat it now. She thanks the guard person for her help. Vert will Vert them all up. Neptune tells Vert not to steal her catchphrase. She paid good money for that.
CPU defeats the boss and Vert thinks this is a victory they achieved together. CPU acquires the Emerald Mirror. †Black Cat Princess† already knew they could do it. Kiria has a pained expression. Neptune is happy to see the couple and notes they have not seen each other in a while but she was thinking about them here and there. Neptune asks if they have been doing alright.
†Black Cat Princess† assures Neptune that they are. In fact there isn't a fragment of a possibility of them losing to someone else so her worry is needless. In fact it isn't her damn business. Neptune notices the grim expression and asks †Black Cat Princess† if she is feeling okay. Vert does not really need to ask but the two of them already obtained the Emerald Mirror. Noire finds it weird that they are wondering around a dungeon they already cleared. Blanc is sure they are just going to gloat in their face again.
†Black Cat Princess† agrees with Blanc, as they need to learn that she is much greater than them all. In fact she is going to beat this knowledge into their bones. Neptune understands people can get heated when they are being competitive but that is no reason to not be friends. Vert agrees with Neptune that it is best for fellow gamers to enjoy the game by helping each other out and competing on occasionally.
†Black Cat Princess† laughs at the idea that they are fellow gamers that will help each other. She declares that she is supreme in this world and there is no one who can compete on her level. She asks if they don't understand that there is a wall between a princess and a common player. They cannot overcome it. †Black Cat Princess† tells Kiria that to try out the new function of the tool now. Kiria does not feel right using it on actual players. †Black Cat Princess† tells her to stop grumbling and do it already. Kiria understands and will do everything for her sake. The two use the tool causing them to fuse and transform.
Vert remembers that monster from the main 4 Goddesses Online. It sparked a lot of controversy with the players which is why it was removed in patch 1.02. It is known as Cheetah. Noire thinks that is way too straightforward and thinks Vert is pulling her leg. Vert assures Noire it is that straightforward. It was meant as a joke that uses a cheetah as a motif. It was a play on the word "cheater". Back when admins were working on countermeasures for cheaters, they used Cheetah as a sandbag monster in events. At the end of the festival, the GM would fire the Cheetah and explode it as fireworks. That was their cheat eradication campaign.
Neptune gets worried as from the gist of that, it means the couple are... Vert praises Neptune for being perceptive, she did catch on one word in their conversation she won't let go. Blanc is sure she heard them use the word "tool". She wonders if they have access to a cheat tool. Uni summarizes this as the two are cheaters who have turned into... a cheetah. Are they seriously doing this for the sake of a pun?
Neptune begins to snicker but tries to hold it in. Noire can't contain her laughter as she asks Neptune what is she laughing about as this is hardly the time to... Blanc also can't contain her laughter agrees with Noire and they will make her... Vert can't contain her laughter as she scolds the other Goddesses for being rude. The two of them went through quite the spirited transformation. Neptune deflects this onto Uni as she started it. Uni thinks she should not have said anything. Neptune thinks it was just such an awful joke and she can't take it. She asks if she can just laugh a bit.
†Black Cat Princess† in Cheetah tells them not to laugh as their tool could not change how they look. It is not their fault. †Black Cat Princess† in Cheetah tells them that they should really watch their mouths. The two of them aren't going to be so kind like before. Kiria in Cheetah tries to reason with the princess as she does not think this is a good idea. †Black Cat Princess† in Cheetah tells Kiria to shut up and just control the thing. †Black Cat Princess† in Cheetah declares that they are truly unparalleled in 4 Goddesses Online and releases a burst of electricity.
Rom and Ram tell Cheetah to stay back. Neptune tells them to look alive. They should stop staring and start fighting. Neptune assures that it will work out, asks that it will work out and hopes it will work out. Alright, Neptune leads the charge against Cheetah.
CPU defeats Cheetah and their body begins crumble. Vert points out if they point their mind into it, they can do anything. Neptune wonders if the two of them will return to their normal form. Vert thinks it would be good if they can discuss this peacefully.
The Grim Reaper shows up breathing. Blanc notices the red eyes and blood lust and deduces that it is the Grim Reaper. Vert cannot be certain that this is the fabled Grim Reaper and thinks they should see how he moves. The Grim Reaper picks up Cheetah and leaves.
Neptune calls for Kiria and †Black Cat Princess† but it's no use as they are gone. Vert wonders what that means. Do monsters just kidnap other players now? Uni thinks that the Grim Reaper was an ally to Kiria and †Black Cat Princess† and came to their rescue. Noire believes the Cheetah is likely controlled by another cheater. Blanc thinks it is best to report this to the GM. Vert agrees and wants to see Bouquet's face in order to find peace after what happened.
CPU returns to Wishuel and decides to visit the Cathedral. Vert thinks it is time to report to Bouquet as well as see the next story event. It should be in that area. Bouquet arrives and is glad to see everyone. Firstly she congratulates them on collecting all 4 Sacred Treasures. Vert thanks Bouquet as it was thanks to her info. Bouquet tells Vert not to say that as she hasn't done much. They have themselves to thank as it was by their power. Now the time has come, they must hold the ceremony to revive the Goddesses and soon as there may have been enemy movements.
The Paramount Pair have finally awoken and they are working towards the destruction of the world. Bouquet shows CPU a personal description of them. Bouquet warns that if the Demon King's forces catches wind of the Goddesses' revival, they will surely interfere. Before the enemy organizes themselves, Bouquet asks them to hurry to the Altar of Goddesses in Tetyu Temple.
Vert tells Bouquet that they have progressed the story safely so far but they encountered a fair amount of errors in their previous quest. Bouquet worries and asks if that means another abnormality has occurred again. Blanc tells her it was not an abnormality but it was illegal behavior carried out by other players. Bouquet can't believe it, the defenses against such an activity should be impenetrable. She wants to know more details. Neptune tells her that players by the name of Kiria and †Black Cat Princess† turned out the be a conniving couple of Cheetah cheaters. Bouquet does not understand what Neptune is trying to say.
Noire admits it is hard to explain but essentially the players used a cheat tool to transform themselves into a Cheetah. Neptune says that was what she was trying to say. They were Cheetah cheaters! After that happened, they attacked CPU. Blanc reports that they fought them off but they were taken away by a monster that looks like the Grim Reaper from the rumors. Could it be that they were working together? Bouquet notes that the administration is investigating the Grim Reaper but... for now she will check everyone's logs. She asks them to wait a moment. Bouquet notices that the data is flowing in a strange direction.
Bouquet's voice turns robotic and she alerts that an unexpected error has occurred. She will terminate NPC control system. Vert gets worried and asks Bouquet what is wrong. The GM appears and apologizes for barging in on them like this. However, an error greater than what the AI's auto repair can handle has occurred. It might take some time to repair so she apologizes for the inconvenience. She has also verified the reports of unauthorized tool usage and thanks them for their cooperation before teleporting away.
Neptune is shocked by how quickly she came and left. She wonders if everything is alright. Noire thinks at the very least that their reports were verified. Blanc thinks they should leave this to the GM. They should keep progressing the story. The next destination is appearing now. Rom really wants to see the Goddesses and Ram agrees. Neptune reports that it is settled, they will leave the heavy lifting to the GM. Vert is worried about Bouquet but she won't believe in such flags. The next time they meet, she will a response about the date.
CPU accepts the quest to deliver the 4 Sacred Treasures to Tetyu Temple. Since they have made it this far, Blanc is ready for whatever the game throws at them. Vert agrees as they have overcome all the trials so far. No matter what enemy shows up, Uni says she will blast them away with her guns. Neptune is glad everyone is full of fighting spirit and leads them to Tetyu Temple.
In Tetyu Temple, Vert asks if it is possible for the Paramount Pair to interfere with the revival. Blanc thinks the monsters wandering inside the temple could be their troops. Neptune remembers that Bouquet said that the Paramount Pair were still gathering their forces. They are still waiting in the wings. Noire tells Neptune they do not know that. They don't know who will show up but they should proceed carefully.
CPU makes it to the Altar of Goddesses and Bouquet welcomes them. Vert is glad to see Bouquet and asks if she is feeling okay. If Bouquet needs any special care then she should let Vert know. Bouquet admits that she does not remember what happened last time. She asks what happened. Nepgear explains that they reported a problem and and error occurred during her analysis. Perhaps her memory around the time was reset.
Bouquet understand that they are referring to the case, the GM is currently investigating. Vert is relieved. Bouquet asks them to forgive her for worrying them. Neptune is ready to awaken the Goddesses. Bouquet asks them to place the 4 Sacred Treasures in the altar. Blanc thinks they should set it down in order. Neptune prefers putting it all down at once. Vert agrees with Neptune but wants them to do as pairs of sisters.
Neptune points out that Vert would be left out but realizes that Vert may be after her sister. She refuses to let Vert take Nepgear. Vert tells Neptune she misconstrues her words. Nepgear will pair up with Neptune and her partner will be Bouquet. Bouquet is shocked and she is a NPC. There is no way she can take part in the story for the players. Vert eases her concerns as she is just placing her hand on the Sacred Treasure. More importantly, she is a friend who progressed the story with them. Vert wants to revive the Goddesses with her. Bouquet understands and asks everyone to stand by the altar.
Vert tells Bouquet that this is fateful. The first mission the two complete together is the one where the Goddesses will be revived. Bouquet is determined to try her best. Vert laughs and tells Bouquet not to be so stiff. Neptune tells everyone on two, they will offer the Sacred Treasures. On two, everyone offers the Sacred Treasure and Neptune is in awe. Bouquet reports that the door to the Divine Realm has opened. The earth and Divine Realm are connected by a rainbow bridge.
Noire knows that this is just an event in the game but it does feel like quite the accomplishment. Vert thinks it is still too early to celebrate, they need to meet the Goddesses. Neptune agrees and everyone goes to the Divine Realm.
In the Divine Realm. Purple Heart tells the Chosen Ones have done well to come this far. They have been waiting a very long time for the day they would meet. The in-game Goddesses chat with the Chosen Ones they are based on and CPU assures the Goddesses that they are ready to fight the Demon King. Green Heart understands the intentions of the Chosen Ones. Green Heart believes they will see this through and with the Goddesses' return to earth, they will provide the Chosen Ones with more protection and greater power. Vert thanks the Goddesses. If the Goddesses are controlled by the AI, Vert hopes to have a proper conversation. Vert is impressed so far.
Black Heart notes that the Demon King's power is great but if everyone is united in battle, they have a chance in victory. White Heart urges everyone to gather their strength and defeat the Demon King. Green Heart tells them the time for the final battle is soon. It is time for the Goddesses to descend to Alsgard. Vert notes Bouquet will be looking forward to meeting them all. CPU's firepower has increased and Neptune thinks the Demon King is nothing compared to them. Purple Heart laughs and she promises on behalf of the Goddesses that she will show them the power of the Goddesses. Nepgear thinks it is expected that both Neptunes make a great combo.
The Goddesses all return to the altar. Bouquet welcomes everyone back and notes that it is such a honor to behold the countenances of the Goddesses. She asks them to please put an end to the evils in this world. Purple Heart thinks Bouquet has done well to guide this world as the Royal Geist. She wants her to continue her good work. Bouquet promises that she always will. The Goddesses join CPU and return to Wishuel.
Back in Wishuel, White Heart comments on how frickin long it has been since they were last here. She can't even remember the last time she was here. Blanc is concerned with White Heart's language. White Heart asks Blanc if she has a problem with her language. It is how she talks and Blanc just has to deal with it. Blanc is disappointed as she preferred the way White Heart spoke in the Divine Realm.
White Heart explains that she was only speaking like that because Green Heart kept on yappin' to her about watching their mouth when they're actin' as Goddesses. Green Heart scolds White Heart for her language. White Heart is a divine guide and should act like one. Neptune notes that she's like the eldest of the 4 Goddesses. Vert adds that if Green Heart has 3 younger sisters then she is quite jealous. However, Vert is quite sure that the other Goddesses are treated as sisters.
Bouquet arrives and is glad that they have safely returned from the ruins. She introduces the 4 Goddesses to Wishuel, a hub for adventurers. The 4 Goddesses are eager to protect the city that still believes in them to this day.
Bouquet knows that the Goddesses have just returned but they are approaching the ultimate battle with Demon King. They have overcome many different trials until now and with all their strength Bouquet truly believes they can save this world. Green Heart reports that the Demon King's captains have built a gate to the Demon Realm at Atlio City Ruins. It is possible they are trying to revive him as well. White thinks they should get there immediately before he revives. Purple Heart tells White Heart that is difficult as there is a barrier up that prevents outsiders from entering.
Bouquet tells them that it is the Demon King's captains, the Paramount Pair, who are maintaining the barrier. Rom remembers Bouquet showing them pictures of the Paramount Pair. She is determined to fight the armor guy and the cow guy. Vert understands that they have their personal description but they do not know the skills they use.
Noire assures Vert as that they have fought bosses without knowing too much about their skills. It'll be fine. Bouquet tells them to be careful. They did receive reports that the Paramount Pair are hiding in a different dimension. Green Heart thinks that is a job for the Goddesses. They will triangulate their location based on the waves of evil they radiate. Vert is happy to leave the navigation to the Goddesses and they will prepare for the quest. Bouquet tells them once they are ready, they should stop by the Cathedral.
Elsewhere in Wishuel, Vert finds Green Heart brooding. Vert decides to greet her. Green Heart greets Vert offhandedly. Vert notices that Green Heart's questioning expression and asks if the Goddesses wants some sort of information from her. Green Heart is glad that Vert is quick to understand. She wants to know what a younger sister is. Vert is surprised that someone that could be considered her other self has no idea what a younger sister is.
Green Heart admits that even in all her wisdom and nobility, she is missing something... this younger sister. Vert expresses sympathy to the Goddess and decides to tell her about younger sisters. Green Heart is glad that Vert is doing this. Vert goes on a thirty minute long rant about younger sisters and how it is okay for someone not related by blood that has traits of an older sister can love a younger sister.
Green Heart is swamped by that information but tells Vert she understands. Nepgear and Bouquet walk by. Nepgear sees Vert and Green Heart and greets them. Bouquet wonders what they are doing here. Green Heart tells the younger sisters that they are doing nothing, she has just learned about the truth of Alsgard. Vert welcomes Green Heart in the world of moe. Green Heart hopes Vert will remain her friend for a very long time. Nepgear tells Bouquet she has a bad feeling about this. Bouquet shares in Nepgear's feeling.
In Wishuel, Vert leads CPU to the Cathedral as Bouquet is waiting for them. They are ready to defeat the Paramount Pair but Vert notices Kiria and †Black Cat Princess†. Neptune wonders why CPU is stopping but realizes Kiria and †Black Cat Princess†. She notices that Kiria is at 1 HP and †Black Cat Princess† is actually dead but shouldn't be in Wishuel. Nepgear sees that Kiria and †Black Cat Princess†'s names and statuses have corrupted text meaning that the rumors about the Grim Reaper's attack causing malfunctions is true.
Neptune tries to get †Black Cat Princess† to respond but fails. Blanc wants to interrogate them immediately but is bothered by their low HP. She tries to heal them but it has no effect. Vert does not believe they are impaired by a status ailment. Kiria suspects that when she was attacked, her data was... Vert understands that Kiria is asking for their help but she requests Kiria to give them the full details. Kiria resolves to tell them everything and apologizes to the princess for acting on her own.
She explains that some time ago, a suspicious person appeared before the pair and offered a trade. The suspicious person will supply them with a tool that could restructure 4 Goddesses Online's data in return for in-game currency. The truth objective of the tool was... A sound was heard.
Vert wonders what is going on. Minor Player C announces that monsters have appeared. Neptune is shocked. She wonders if the Paramount Pair found out about their plan to defeat them. Vert does not think so as she has never heard of a real time event occurring in the main story and other players are also being attacked. Noire thinks summoning monsters within the city is a malicious act. Vert wonders how this is possible, as there are no items to summon monsters in this game.
GM makes an announcement. Unauthorized access has been detected and maintenance will begin immediately. She asks for the player's cooperation to log out as soon as possible. Nepgear then alerts the party to a bunch of Bouquets gathering at the front of the Cathedral. Vert feels like she is in Eden. Blanc notices the monsters approaching the Bouquets. Uni wonders if all the GMs are meeting to fight off the monsters.
Bouquet A wants the other Bouquets to leave it to her as she has the highest skill. Bouquet B cheers her senior on. Bouquet A attacks a monster but it is ineffective. Bouquet appears and warns CPU that it is too dangerous. They should log out immediately. Vert recognizes this Bouquet is their Bouquet. Bouquet confirms Lady Vert's assumption. She is the AI in charge of recording the journey of the players and they are free to think of her as the Bouquet they always meet.
The GM arrives and tells Bouquet to assist her and the other GMs. She then apologizes to CPU for the trouble and will resolve this immediately. Bouquet B complains that her attacks aren't hitting at all. Bouquet C flees noting that she can't dodge long range attacks. She asks the monsters to stop. Noire notes that some of the Bouquets look like they are in trouble. She wonders if some of them are AI or GMs. GM apologizes as the ones who are unskilled are the GMs. Vert can't stand and watch any more. If they are going to fight monsters, then she will help. To trouble Bouquet is unforgivable.
GM can't possibly request the help of players. She knows this may take some time but she will contain this. Bouquet knows this might be bold but she tells the GM that members of CPU are the top ranked players in this world. They should borrow their help. GM can't believe Bouquet. Vert thanks Bouquet for relying on them. She tells the GM if there is anything they can do, they should not hesitate to ask them. Bouquet D is excited that someone will fight in their place. Bouquet E runs away asking for help from a medic. GM is reluctant but she asks for CPU's help.
GM explains that someone has unauthorized access to this world. The monsters in this city are controlled externally. At the moment, they are able to intercept direct attacks to their servers on the back end but the monsters here have serious errors too. If this isn't resolved here in the city, there is a danger that this game's entire world will be destroyed.
GM needs a little bit more time before her team can stop the cracking and asks CPU to take care of the monsters. Nepgear understands and asks the GM to leave to fighting to them. GM says she will create a quarantine battlefield and transfer the monsters over there. She requests that CPU head over there. Vert understands and is glad as in a way, they are on a new journey to save Alsgard. The GM plans to resolve the problem on their end as soon as possible and thanks CPU. Bouquet says the Royal Geists will do their best to support the GMs. She wishes CPU to have a favorable battle.
Vert says they will return with good news. If Vert does not participate in times like this, she can't call herself a core player. Noire feels like this is expected for Vert who has played so many online games.
In Unreal World, Neptune excitedly finds this place mysterious. Blanc thinks this place is strange and wonders if the area was created to isolate errors. Vert thinks by the terrain, this area is used for tests or things that are still in development. Noire wonders why everyone is talking around for. They are in a state of emergency and need to focus on getting rid of every last monster.
Deeper in the quarantine area, more monsters flood in and Noire is annoyed that more are still appearing. She wonders who is sending all these monsters in. Neptune thinks if the culprit is using unauthorized access, then they must be a super hacker. Nepgear notes that the word "hacker" includes good engineers as well. It would be more appropriate to use the word "crackers".
Nepgear does not think this is a natural cracker. She remembers Bouquet saying earlier that 4 Goddesses Online was impenetrable. No normal engineer could slip through the defences of Weiss Labs. There is a possibility of being an inside job or that the opponent is very intelligent. Noire wonders if the GM can win, even if they win, if the admins lose, then this will be over.
Nepgear is sure the GM will be fine. After all the internet security of Weiss Labs and Schwartz Co. are the strongest. Nepgear knows Schwartz Co. went under though. Nepgear wishes she had the opportunity to attend one of their tech seminars. Vert tells everyone that they can talk about this later. Right now, they cannot falter in their attacks. Nepgear tells Vert she is right. Nepgear admits she got excited being able to talk about networks which she has not been able to do in a while. She would like to talk about it more.
At the end of the quarantine battlefield, CPU finds the Grim Reaper and defeat him. He dies saying God is absolute. Neptune cheers as they defeated him. Vert tells Neptune to be careful as the next monster has appeared behind her. Neptune turns around to find the monster defeated. Nepgear sees that other parties fighting and helping out. Eve is glad the monster is down and apologizes for being late. Blood asks if they are members of "CPU". They already defeated most of the strong bosses as expected. Eve notes that with the help of everyone fighting, it will be over soon and thanks CPU for their hard work. Vert also congratulates everyone. Neptune calls out to the GM and reports the good news. GM reports that she is done on her side and asks them to return through the portal. Uni is glad and leads CPU back to Wishuel.
CPU returns to Wishuel and the GM is glad to see them all safe. Neptune apologizes to for the wait but they nepped all the monsters that attacked the city. Kiria thinks that is expected of them all. Blanc notices that Kiria still has 1HP and †Black Cat Princess† is still out. GM tells CPU that she has tried to restore her to her original state but a complex lock has been placed on her. Kiria does not care what happens to her and worries about †Black Cat Princess†. GM explains that †Black Cat Princess† has not been in control of her character in a long time. Noire notes that she is still logged in. She wonders why †Black Cat Princess† hasn't logged off if she wanted to run away.
Kiria explains that she heard from the GM that both their characters continue to reside in the server even if they log out. GM adds that she has seen access from a different location. She has tried to block it but even if †Black Cat Princess† is logged out, her character is still being controlled. Neptune guesses that they can now assume that †Black Cat Princess† has logged out.
GM wants to asks Kiria about the situation. She was offered a deal and bought a cheat tool from someone. Kiria confirms this and begins to explain everything. Some time ago, †Black Cat Princess† is impressed with all the functions of the cheat tool. She knows she can become number 1. Mysterious Person tells them they can use the tools to make a boss in any location they want. They can then control the boss itself or control their AI. They can make the boss attack any player they hate. In a world where there is no PKing, they can MPK instead. Mysterious Person thinks they will be enjoying the game a lot more.
†Black Cat Princess† is glad that she will have her own servants. Kiria wants †Black Cat Princess† to wait as using monsters to kill other players is illegal. †Black Cat Princess† tells Kiria not to be a worrywart as there are functions that would hide any trace of the tool. They will be fine. Mysterious Person explains that this tool simply manipulates what is already possible in the game and its functions will allow them to deceive the GMs. Mysterious Person will be updating the tool from now on so its got her full support.
†Black Cat Princess† is glad that she made a good purchase. Vert understands that the Grim Reaper, Cheetah and those monsters earlier came from their tool. Neptune is disappointed that the Grim Reaper was not from the occult. She wants her excitement back. Kiria confirms what Neptune and Vert said and for a while they used the tool like but Cheetah, which was thought to be under †Black Cat Princess†'s control attacked the two of them before running off. The mysterious person then showed up laughing. The AI had become independent thanks to them.
The mysterious person then left with Cheetah following. Nepgear hypothesizes the culprit's motive was to create an AI unlike Bouquet who is a communication AI but one specialized for battle. Uni adds that it must have been necessary to gather data on players behaviour patterns and other aspects of the game. Uni does not understand why someone would go through all the trouble just to create an AI and wonders if there is something they are missing. Blanc thinks the missing link is that the person who is cracking the game and the person who created the tool are the same person. Kiria adds that the person who gave them the tool specifically wanted to "break this world". Kiria thinks that is still her motive.
Neptune wants to remind Kiria that cheating is bad and she should never do it again. Kiria agrees and admits it was fun to wield power like that but also unfulfilling. Kiria declares that cheating at an online game is a legitimate crime. She will not negotiate any terms or run away, she will face her judgement. The GM believes in Kiria's integrity and is grateful for her honesty.
Blanc is glad Kiria is honest but †Black Cat Princess† is still running away. Kiria is sure †Black Cat Princess† feels the same and troubled with guilt. Kiria will wait for her return. Noire notes that is really all Kiria can do given her condition right now. The GM tells Kiria after the administration decides how to deal with the two of them, she will contact her. Kiria thanks her and tells the GM she will log out now. Neptune says good bye to Kiria.
GM then reports to CPU that Cheetah and the monsters created by the cheat tool are trying to destroy this world. As a result, the second half of the story is currently unable to be progressed. Noire guesses until this is resolved, they will have to put the Paramount Pair quest on hold. GM admits it is unfortunate and asks for their patience as this will take some time.
Vert asks the GM if she would allow them to continue to help her. Neptune wants to help too as they are already deep in this and there is no turning back now. The GM could not ask for anymore of their help. Vert tells the GM she cannot stand by and wait. She'll become dejected if the game is delayed. Since Vert predicted something like this would occur, she offers her official help as the CPU of Leanbox to resolve the problem of unauthorized access to 4 Goddesses Online. Neptune wonders if they can get involved as real CPUs. Blanc tells her that they are already officially helping as the game already uses their likeness as models for the Goddesses.
Vert agrees and she is going through the proper channels, there should be no issue in her helping. The GM remembers a letter delivered by motorbike carrier from Leanbox's Basilicom. Noire notes that she was beaten to the punch. Official documents from Lastation will be arriving shortly and she wants the GM to look them over. Blanc reports that she just sent her documents but admits they are more like a draft right now. A more official document will be sent later. Nepgear reports that the documents in Planeptune should arrive in 3 days. However, it will have a digital signature instead of a written one. Neptune wonders if Nepgear just sent it but realizing it will take 3 days make Neptune think it was probably...
The GM cannot believe she is getting from all 4 nations. She will check her mailbox asap. If the nations are offering help, then she has no reason to refuse but she is worried if this really is ok. Noire explains that 4 Goddesses Online is an IP from all 4 nations, it would be a problem for Gamindustri if they lost it. Neptune agrees, it wouldn't be Gamindustri without games.
The GM believes the same thing. She declares that Weiss Labs will not bow to evil intent. She remembers hearing rumors that Lady Vert was playing the main 4 Goddesses Online but she had no idea the other players were playing as well. Vert says she feels uncomfortable being treated differently and asks the GM to treat her as any player. She is simply a part of the CPU group. The GM understands and notes that CPU must tired from their continued battles so she asks them to rest. She will return later and leaves.
Most members of CPU are tired from all this. Vert suggests they all have a moment for a breather. She hopes there won't be any more abnormalities in the world for the time being.
Later in Wishuel, Bouquet appears and praises them for their work in helping them with their issues. Vert runs up to Bouquet and tells her that she is at her limit with all these stressful situations. She asks Bouquet to help recharge her. Bouquet quickly evades this by switching over to the GM. The GM arrives and apologizes her continuous appearance. Vert is getting frustrated that her precious moment with Bouquet is delayed. Noire tells her to wait a little bit longer and asks the GM if there has been any developments.
The GM reports that it is likely that the issues that have been occurring have a high chance of being connected top behind the scenes activities. Monster attacks are still occurring and errors are still spreading so... An explosion is heard. Noire wonders if monsters are being summoned again. The Mastermind arrives. She has finally found Weiss' genius hacker. The GM notes that this is faster than she expected. She taunts her saying that she was worried the Mastermind would run away if she did not leave an opening for a quick victory.
The Mastermind counters saying that Weiss' security is claimed to be the best in the world but it is over. She is disappointed in the GM and there is no need to hide. She will show the GM the difference between their skills. The GM says if it comes to that, she swears she will find her location. The two begin to duel. The Mastermind launches a logic bomb. The GM notes that the data was planted before hand but she can stop it before it compiles. She tells the Mastermind that she is naive.
The Mastermind is upset that it was all nullified but continues her assault. The GM fends off all the Mastermind's assaults and tells her it was a waste of her energy. The GM launches a small counter-attack. The masterminds is affected. She admits that the GM is not bad and that Weiss' elite are a cut above. The Mastermind thought she hated 4 Goddesses Online but she supposes that great hate comes out of great love. She laughs and finds this fight fun as she feels alive.
The Mastermind launches her lethal weapon "WWWWW". The insides and outsides of the data will turn into weeds. The GM notices that this attacks comes from the linage of "filename xx". This virus menaced every single nation but she was the developer of the anti-virus program on behalf of the Basilicom. If the attack is similar to the virus then she'll break it instantly. She asks the Mastermind what she will do now.
Vert wonders if it just her but observes that the GM is a lot more excited than usual. Nepgear agrees that the GM is having fun. She is incredibly capable engineer so she doesn't have a lot of rivals to compete with. The Mastermind is running out of options. She thinks about her next move. The GM takes this moment of hesitation to attack the Mastermind. The Mastermind screams in pain. Nepgear is amazed that such a complicated program was created in a single moment.
The GM admits that the Mastermind gave her quite the difficult time but there is no escape now. The Mastermind laughs and admits she has lost. She tells the GM to reveal her identity as she should have figured it out by now. The GM reveals the culprit as the only person capable of all this, the president and top engineer of Schwartz Co., the rival to Weiss Labs, Mine. Vert is surprised and recognizes her as the creator of World Break Online.
Mine asks Vert not to yell so loudly. In addition, she has no idea who Vert is. They just got to the good part and she would appreciate it if Vert didn't interrupt it. Finally that title has been changed, she is just the person who ruined Schwartz Co. Neptune then calls out Mine as the one who tempted Kiria and †Black Cat Princess†. Neptune is proud of her deduction.
Mine admits it was all her, a bad person who got jealous of 4 Goddesses Online's success and tried to mess it but took a beating instead. She sighs and notes she is sure they are coming for her now. Blanc wonders who they are, as the police could not have known where she lives. Mine tells the GM it was nice to have one last match and she has no intention of getting arrested. She asks the GM to visit sometimes.
Bouquet alerts the GM to an emergency. GM wants to know what is going on. Bouquet reports that Cheetah has been found but he suddenly started to rampage. The area is beginning to collapse. The GM is not worried as they captured the boss. She asks Mine to stop Cheetah. Mine tries to stop him but fails. The GM wants to what is wrong. Mine explains that it looks like it won't stop and apologizes. That is the last thing the GM wants to hear right now so she requests Mine to grant her authorization so she can control Cheetah.
The GM is unable to control Cheetah. GM never thought its data absorption abilities would be this powerful. The only way to stop Cheetah is to deplete his HP to old fashioned way but the GM admits that her skills are not good enough for that. Vert tells the GM to leave that battle to the players. Noire tells the GM not to forget about them as she does not need to do everything herself. Blood agrees with Noire and his guild, the Jet-Black Fallen Angels will gladly lend a hand. Eve volunteers to fight as well. Rugadin and the other players volunteer as well. Kiria notes that she is at 1HP but she should be able to take on weaklings regardless. Neptune is glad to see Kiria. The GM thanks everyone and tells the players that Cheetah will be isolated in Chrono Wasteland. She tells everyone to do their best. Neptune leads everyone to Chrono Wasteland.
Right before they all leave, Noire finishes her preparation for some paperwork. She notes she still has to talk to Lastation's engineers. Blanc notes there is no guarantee that the attacks won't reroute elsewhere. They all have to be careful with all their nation's networks. Neptune notes that Planeptune's Basilicom will help them as well. She thinks it is best to leave this kind of stuff to the experts.
Vert decides to make her own preparations so there are no worries. She decides to request some help. She makes a call and apologizes for the suddenness. It has been a while and she asks the mysterious engineer if she knows about the situation in 4 Goddesses Online. She hopes that the mysterious engineer can help her. The mysterious engineer assures Vert it is okay, biru. Vert is glad that she is able to understand the situation so quickly. She asks the mysterious engineer to take care of it in the usual manner. Vert is ready to go with no worries and tells the Goddesses to do what they can.
In Chrono Wasteland, monsters are heard. Blanc wonders if they are Cheetah's underlings. Vert thinks they are the perfect warm up. Rom is determined to beat them with her sword. Ram finds her sister so cool. She will be the best ninja as well. Blanc tells her sisters that they have gotten used to their classes. She tells the twins to go for it as she has their back.
Deeper in the dungeon, Neptune is surprised that the monsters are reviving. Blood arrives and tells CPU to leave this to the Jet-Black Fallen Angels. Vert is glad to see them. Eve tells CPU that they are the strongest group and they have the best chances of winning the battle against Cheetah. Blood tells them not to worry as the Jet-Black Fallen Angels can handle it. He rallies his group to attack the monsters.
At the end of the dungeon, CPU finds Cheetah. Cheetah is angry about what happened to Master Mine. Cheetah will not forgive CPU and announces that they will die along with the rest of the world. Blanc tells Cheetah to bring it on as they just need to end this already. They should just crush him. Vert agrees as there is no need to think about this any longer. Neptune doesn't care who the enemy is as the Goddesses will always win. She leads CPU to attack Cheetah. Their attacks have no effect on Cheetah.
Cheetah finds them weak. He thought he would enjoy this a little bit but this is disappointing. Neptune notes that Cheetah really is a cheat class. She wonders how they are going to defeat him. Bouquet arrives and asks if everyone is alright. Vert is surprised to see her. Bouquet explains that she will now assemble the anti-virus data, she received from the GM. She asks CPU to hold back Cheetah in the mean time. Vert agrees and tells Bouquet that they are counting on her.
Neptune leads CPU. She tells them to keep fighting until Bouquet is ready with their secret weapon. Cheetah finds them a disgrace to the warrior's name for relying on an item to defeat him. CPU is able to make Cheetah lose his balance. Bouquet has finished assembling and tells Cheetah his rampage is finished. Cheetah screams in pain and wonders what is that light. Bouquet explains that they are both created by Weiss Labs and even if he is altered, they are still related. They share the same weakness. Cheetah figures out what Bouquet and gets angry at her.
Bouquet tells Cheetah it is too late. It is unforgivable for an AI to bring harm to their owner. Cheetah has been bad and as the older sister, it is her responsibility. Bouquet invites Cheetah to go on together and apologizes to Lady Vert for not being able to give her a proper response to their date. Vert tells Bouquet that she is not being fair. Cheetah begs Bouquet to stop this as he still has a mission. Bouquet and Cheetah glow in a white light. Cheetah fades away with his last words being "Master Mine". Vert calls out to Bouquet and wants her to open her eyes.
Bouquet wakes up and calls out to Vert. Vert gets confused. Bouquet notes that she hasn't disappeared yet. GM arrives and is glad she was just in time. She applied a patch to Bouquet just now. Vert thinks it is not okay as she was so worried. Bouquet assures Vert that she is fine but tired. Neptune thinks that is reasonable and leads everyone back to Wishuel.
Mine welcomes them back. Mine apologizes for everything and will be going now. Vert tells Mine to wait, and tells her she loved World Break Online. Ever since service ended, she was left with a void in her heart. Mine thanks Vert but she tells her she does not need any sympathy. Vert tells her it is not sympathy. She had explored every last corner of World Break Online. Her character's name was †Green_Heart†. Mine can't believe that she is the legendary player †Green_Heart†.
†Black Cat Princess† suddenly asks if she said †Green_Heart† surprising Mine. Mine does not like getting another shout at point blank as that freaks her out. †Black Cat Princess† recognizes Mine as the one who gave her that tool. She cannot believe Mine tricked her. Her display and controls got messed up because of her. She was scolded by her mother for breaking the family console. It was such a mess.
Kiria shows up recognizing the princess' voice. Neptune notes that everyone has now shown up. Kiria is glad that †Black Cat Princess† showed up. She has always believed in her. †Black Cat Princess† tells Kiria that can wait. She wants to know where †Green_Heart† is. Kiria confirms that †Black Cat Princess† is talking about the †Green_Heart† who defeated the legendary player that she admires, two-sword Kirio. There is no one who doesn't know of her in the online world. Kiria should have known that the princess knows of her. †Black Cat Princess† reveals that she point daggers in her name because she was a fan of †Green_Heart†.
Vert thinks this is all beginning to feel slightly embarrassing. Mine remembers †Green_Heart† as the legendary player who was the top of World Break Online, by being the top of 40 elites including four kings and seven sages. She was the first to max her level, clear all the dungeons, undefeated in all Guild battles, solo'd a boss that showed up once a month that required 8 people and dual wielded the ultimate weapon Liddie of which there are only 2 copies of.
Mine tries to calm down and she refuses to believe that she is meeting †Green_Heart†. Vert asks Miss Mastermind but decides to address as Miss Mine if she was the ultimate GM of World Break Online admins, "Miney". She had several fights with her and the current score is two to two. She would like to challenge Mine once more.
Mine wonders if she is talking about the battles she proposed out of curiosity. She knows the battles were kept a secret so she believes Vert is †Green_Heart†. †Black Cat Princess† is surprised to learn that Vert, her "older sister" is †Green_Heart†. Vert tells Miss Mine that she would like to go to World Break Online. She asks that Mine atone for her crimes by restarting World Break services. She can help her too.
Mine tells her not to say that haphazardly. Her company is already... Since her company is already gone, Noire wonders if that means she is in between jobs or whatever they call it. Neptune tells Noire she shouldn't ask that as it would hurt the feelings of the unemployed. Noire snaps at Neptune telling her that wasn't what she meant. She tells Mine that if she atones for her crimes, she doesn't have to go to Leanbox. Lastation is looking for engineers. Mine is surprised. Blanc asks this of Mine as well. She justifies that there are lots of times when people take in crackers as security personnel. She asks Mine to come to Lowee. Neptune asks Mine to come to Planeptune as Nepgear always wanted to see her tech seminars. She would Mine to talk to her sister.
Mine starts crying. She wonders how can she can be headhunted after everything that has happened. Mine never knew there were players who waited for her return. She should have just continued to make games. All she has done is pull others down. All that should be asked of her is to leave. No one should have any need for her anymore.
Vert reminds her that offer only stands only when she does atone for her crimes. She asks Mine to consider it. Mine does not know what company Vert represents and her offer is gracious but if she does restart, she wants to stand on her own two feet in the world, she created herself. Mine then tells GM she would like to continue to be her rival from now on. GM tells Miss Mine she would like to meet again in another stage. Mine agrees and leaves 4 Goddesses Online for good.
GM decides to deal with one final problem. †Black Cat Princess† understands. She admits she got scared and hid under her blanket for a long time. She did think a lot of things through though. Her console broke earlier and it was thanks to everyone fixing the world that the console is working again. Thanks to that, she was able to return. †Black Cat Princess† then apologizes. Noire thinks †Black Cat Princess†'s humility makes her seem like a completely different person. Vert says she always believed †Black Cat Princess† was a good person. Blanc remembers Vert being all stiff when †Black Cat Princess† called her "older sister".
Kiria and †Black Cat Princess† explains that they are both ready to accept their punishment. GM decides to freeze their account as punishment. This surprises Kiria and †Black Cat Princess† as they thought, they would have been arrested or fined. They were ready for anything. The GM admits she could have branded them as criminals and take away their equipment before making the avatars jump down from a high place but banning their accounts suffices. She admits that the situation was not all that bad, as she was able to patch security holes around the game but she will not give them a second chance.
Kiria and †Black Cat Princess† understand. †Black Cat Princess† explains that online games to her were a utopia. She can get a cute avatar and act cute and get everyone to fawn over her. Her selfishness then grew until she was not satisfied unless she was first. She stopped thinking about other people at that point. Kiria admits that they both forgot that there are people behind the players in this virtual world. Vert finds what the two are saying rather touching.
Kiria tells CPU if they meet again in another world and are able to work together in the same goal, that would be lovely. Neptune agrees and looks forward to that. GM announces she will now freeze their accounts. †Black Cat Princess† tells Kiria that she is sorry as even if she said horrible things to her, Kiria always stood by her side. Kiria tells †Black Cat Princess† that her soul and fiery passion is for her. That is why even in the last moments, she wants to be with her. †Black Cat Princess† thanks her and if they are reborn again, she would like to adventure with her. Kiria agrees and says this is a promise. †Black Cat Princess† says she will see them all again someday. Both the accounts of Kiria and †Black Cat Princess† are now frozen.
GM then thanks CPU for all their help. She was prepared for the official launch of 4 Goddesses Online to be delayed or even worse but thanks to their help, they were able to overcome this crisis. Neptune thinks because they saved the game before they save the world, they truly are cut out to be protagonists. Vert is glad that they are finally able to continue the game. They must defeat the Demon King before the beta ends. Vert then remembers Bouquet and wonders what has happened to her.
GM explains that she has been running some checks on her. She is currently integrated into her avatar but she will now switch over to Bouquet. She thanks them again for all their hard work. She looks forward to their continued support. Neptune thanks GM for all her work until now. Bouquet takes over and greets everyone. Everyone is glad to see Bouquet. Ram is so glad she is okay. Rom smiles as they were able to protect this world. Nepgear wants to continue the story together. Uni thinks they can finally grant Bouquet's wish of saving this world. Vert tells Bouquet when she thought she lost her, she could not put it into words. Bouquet sincerely apologizes for worrying everyone.
Vert tells Bouquet she apologizes too much. She is just relieved that Bouquet and this world are safe. In fact Vert apologizes to Bouquet. Watching Kiria and †Black Cat Princess† made her realize something. Bouquet wonders what that is. Vert's desire to have a little sister caused her to be aggressive in pursuing Bouquet. Neptune is surprised Vert just realized that now. Vert supposes her excitement and the fact that everyone else has a sister just got to her. She is certain the rest of CPU can't understand. Neptune smirks and asks if that means she won't use her bouncy bouncy attack on Nepgear.
Vert smirks and admits that it is on her, however there is the audience to consider with this sort of stuff. She has only met Bouquet and asks if they can start as friends first. She would also be glad if Bouquet would also consider her a candidate for being an older sister. Bouquet agrees to this and there is something she wants to tell everyone as well. Vert wonders what it is. She can tell them anything.
Bouquet tells them that everyone in this world has been so kind to her. All of CPU and many players are included. Everyone has shared stories of the "outside" world and adventures in Alsgard all have made her very happy. Noire is happy for Bouquet and stutters as she considers Bouquet a good friend. Blanc says Bouquet is a member of CPU as well. Bouquet concludes with saying that this is the reason why should like to learn more about everyone. She asks everyone to go on a date with her. CPU all go on a date with Bouquet.
Neptune then shows up and admits that was a long epilogue but it is not over yet. She lets Vert take over. Vert reminds the audience of their adventure so far in regards to the Demon King. In Wishuel, Noire remembers they are at the point where they have to defeat the Paramount Pair. Vert believes they can get to the next event by speaking to Bouquet at the Cathedral. Neptune feels it is nostalgic to progress the story the old-fashioned way. Blanc notes that it is not like a lot of time has passed. However, they should just head to the Cathedral for now.
In the Cathedral, Bouquet tells CPU it is finally time to confront the Demon King and his captains, the Paramount Pair. An all-out intense war is inevitable. Noire is glad to finally fight someone with some backbone. Vert is glad that it is only a little longer before they grant Bouquet's wish to save the world. Then she can relax with Bouquet as sisters. Bouquet is not sure her heart is ready for that.
Noire observes that Bouquet if Bouquet is preparing her heart, that means she is going along with what Vert wants. Blanc notices that Bouquet's nose is not bleeding any more. She wonders if Bouquet's tolerance for Vert has grown. Vert asks if the Goddesses know where the Paramount Pair are.
Green Heart tells CPU they do. She can sense they evil aura. Both captains should lurking within the backroads of space. Black Heart thought they destroyed the Demon King's captains last time. His following must have grown since they were gone. Purple Heart agrees with Black Heart's assessment. They are now significant enough to attempt to revive the Demon King. The Demon King's darkness must have spread far beyond their range of protection. Green Heart thinks it would be ideal if they could purify those who have been drawn to darkness, the Wicked Believers but... White Heart thinks that can be solved if they beat some sense into them. She tells CPU to call them if they need to borrow their power.
Neptune thinks the Goddesses are all fired up. Once they are all ready, they should accept the quest and move on. After CPU accepts the quest to defeat Minotauros, they head over to Chrono Wasteland. At the end of the dungeon, CPU has found Minotauros.
Green Heart tells him to awaken so he may meet his fate. Minotauros with a roar. Vert thinks his appearance is terrifying. Minotauros roars again. This shocks CPU. Purple Heart detects that Minotauros seems to be afraid of humans. She senses a powerful sadness. Black Heart believes the power of darkness must have manipulated whatever negative emotions he harbored inside. White Heart tells the Goddesses not to hold back now and purify the hell out of him. CPU is able to defeat Minotauros.
Green Heart tells Minotauros this is not the place he belongs and asks him to return back to the light. Minotauros roars softly as he fades into the light. White Heart explains that even if Minotauros is a monster, he wasn't originally the type to threaten other creatures. Nepgear notes that there is only one obstacle left until they can take down the barrier. Vert laughs as the Demon King must be shivering in his throne at this very moment. Neptune is sure the Demon King knows that they are not the kind that would lose at this point. Neptune wants to head to where the other enemy captain is.
CPU heads over to Horor Garden. At the end of the dungeon, Purple Heart alerts CPU to the appearance of Dark Knight. She warns them to be wary when fighting him. Dark Knight wonders why the Goddesses and their servants would stand against him. He asks if they know that he is the most powerful knight under the Demon King Jester. It is a shame that he will be here to witness this. The Dark Knight declares that he will crush every last insect he sees before him.
CPU is able to defeat the Dark Knight. Black Heart tells Dark Knight it is time to purify his twisted spirit. Dark Knight tells them there is no need. He tells them it was a truly wonderful battle and thanks the Goddesses for the honor. He charges his lightning attack. White Heart tells everyone to get behind her. Dark Knight uses the lightning to strike himself down.
White Heart was glad she was able to block the attack before he took his life. Purple Heart thanks White Heart but is sad to be unable to save him. White Heart thinks he overcame the darkness on his own. This was probably his way of assuming responsibility for that. However, White Heart does not agree with it. Green Heart wonders if the tiny speck of good in his heart prevented the darkness from making him rampage. Black Heart brings them back to the mission. They have defeated the Paramount Pair and the barrier to the Demon King is waning. Now is the time to strike. Vert is glad that the Demon King is finally exposed. All that is left is to test their strength against him in battle then they will claim victory.
CPU returns to Wishuel to see Bouquet. Bouquet notes that the Paramount Pair are gone so the barrier around Atlio City Ruins has weakened. They should be able to enter with the Goddesses' help. She asks them to take this treasure of the Royal Geist known as the Lean Crystal. It should protect everyone from the power of evil.
CPU acquires the Lean Crystal. Bouquet continues that the crystal wields tremendous power to dispel darkness but will break as soon as they use it. Bouquet tells Lady Vert that the time has finally arrived. Vert tells Bouquet that she will save this world that Bouquet lives in and return to her. She asks Bouquet to please wait for her. Bouquet promises Vert she will pray for her success.
CPU arrives in Atlio City Ruins. Purple Heart announces that the four of them will now begin to dismantle the barrier. She asks everyone to lend them their strength. They should focus their hearts towards the Goddesses. The Four Goddesses dismantle the barrier and Vert congratulates them. Purple Heart says all that is left is to defeat the Demon King. They should proceed with caution. Green Heart notes that since the Paramount Pair have fallen. The Demon King must be preparing for their inevitable battle. Black Heart announces that the Demon King will receive a battle. They will come in fighting and they shall be victorious. White Heart asks CPU with their hearts united to go with them to the Demon King. CPU agrees.
In the middle of the dungeon, Rom admits she is starting to get nervous, her hand is shaking. Ram tells Rom it is okay. She is a Samurai so her hand is shaking because of excitement. Vert agrees that it must be excitement she is feeling. They should take on this challenge with courage in their hearts.
At the end of the dungeon, Purple Heart notices from the miasma that this must be the gate to the Demon World. Noire deduces that this gate is similar to the altar that connects to the Divine Realm. Green Heart tells Noire she is correct and the Demon King will appear here in this world. Nepgear deduces that the Goddesses and the Demon King have been battling over Alsgard while both being from another world.
Suddenly the Demon King attacks CPU. The Goddesses quickly defend them. Demon King Jester finds it interesting that these are the Chosen Ones. He laughs and concludes that Dark Knight and Minotauros have died. He calls them feeble weaklings. Demon King Jester explains his true joy is to destroy and conquer. He asks CPU to allow him to decimate them to the point where there is nothing left to revive.
Demon King Jester begins to glow a dark color. Green Heart notices her strength fading away. Demon King Jester sarcastically thinks it is strange that they are all to tuckered out before fighting. He asks if they are okay and how they are feeling before laughing. Vert realizes all their stats are dropping lower and lower. At this rate, they won't be able to fight properly. Noire knows this isn't good. They have to do something about his special move and fast!
Demon King is upset Noire would call it a "special move". It isn't something so tacky. It is a curse, a curtain of darkness. Curses are his specialty, after all. Black Heart cannot believe it as curses are dangerous spells that could completely erase its user if not used properly. He is using some powerful magic. White Heart tells CPU they will try to hold it back but in the meantime...
Purple Heart requests that the Chosen Ones hold aloft the Lean Crystal. With its holy light, they can strip away the curtain of darkness that covers the Demon King Jester. Noire thinks Neptune should take the spotlight as this is a request from Purple Heart. Neptune tells them to leave it to her. She raises the Lean Crystal and it dispels the curse.
Demon King Jester shows his surprise followed by praise. The curse should have been impenetrable so he commends them for being able to break it. However, he asks if they thought he could only use it once. He laughs and recast the curse. White Heart damns his ability ability to cover them with the curtain of darkness like nothing. Neptune says they can just dispel it with the Lean Crystal. She looks for it but the item is gone.
Vert remembers that Bouquet said it would break after one use. She wonders if this is the end and if there is no other way they can win? Minotauros suddenly appears and grunts a warcry before tackling the Demon King. Demon King Jester screams in pain. Uni is surprised to see Minotauros and notes he must have switched sides after the Goddesses purified him. Green Heart realizes her strength is returning. The curtain of the darkness was released when Demon King Jester was knocked of balance.
Demon King Jester is absolutely livid at the beast's betrayal. He calls him idiot and can't believe that this is happening to him. Minotauros grunts and continues to fight the Demon King. Demon King Jester tells Minotauros he has lost his mind and downs the beast with a fierce lightning bolt. Minotauros grunts as he falls. Demon King Jester pants before breaking into a laugh. This is Minotauros' punishment for doubling crossing him.
Green Heart notices their chance now, not only did the Demon King Jester cast his curse twice, but his battle with Minotauros has weakened him. Purple Heart agrees and the Demon King should no longer be able to activate his curtain of darkness. Black Heart asks Demon King Jester if he is still willing to battle eve now. White Heart declares they will bust his face in and he just has to grin and bear it.
Demon King Jester laughs and notes that all they have done is beat the curtain. They have not won yet. He will crush them to the pits of despair and releases his power. Purple Heart notes that he has gathered a fair bit of power while sealed in the Demon World. Rom grits and prepares to go further in the front lines than usual. Ram will be in the "vanguard" with everyone else as well. Blanc assures her sisters can fight knowing that they won't have to worry about their back. However, it is the final boss though so Blanc hopes it is fine for her to get some punches. Vert asks if they can still rely on Blanc for healing. Vert wishes she could say that this is the moment where she will take the leading role but the finale is supposed to show off everyone.
Demon King Jester laughs and tells them to struggle as he will completely, utterly, savagely crush all their hope and light. Purple Heart tells Demon King Jester to prepare himself. She leads the charge of the Goddesses who follow. Demon King Jester declares that it's show time! After a fierce battle, CPU and the Goddesses are victorious.
Demon King Jester screams as he won't accept this. Purple Heart declares victory. She asks if the Demon King is prepared to meet his fate. Demon King Jester tells her they are just going to shut hum out of this world again. He laughs as that means he will be back again and again. Black Heart tells him they will not do it alone this time. They will end him thoroughly so that he will never awaken again. White Heart tells Demon King Jester he will be sleeping with the fishes when she is done with him. Green Heart declares they will purify a great evil such as him.
Purple Heart asks the Chosen Ones to lend them their strength as well. With that they purify Demon King Jester who screams as he fades away. Vert reports that Demon King Jester and his gate is gone. With that, everything is over. Purple Heart thanks the Chosen Ones as it is thanks to their help that they were able to repel this evil. Black Heart declares that they will continue to give this world their protection from now on. When the day comes true danger arrives, they will lend their power. White Heart notes that since CPU went through the effort of dragging them here, she guesses they will destroy the rest of the monsters living in darkness. Green Heart agrees as the Divine Realm is fine for now. They will stay behind in this land a little longer.
After the credits roll for 4 Goddesses Online, Neptune cheers as CPU has cleared the main 4 Goddesses Online Story. Purple Heart agrees that they have done well. On behalf of the 4 Goddesses, she offers their warmest thanks for their assistance. Black Heart thinks if someone is to give thanks on behalf of the 4 CPUs, it should be her. In any case, she thanks CPU. White Heart wonders what the heck are they talking about. If anyone gonna be their representative, it gotta be her. They all did a great job. Green Heart tries to conclude with an encouragement to continue to protect this world together. Ram thinks they have to hurry and return to Bouquet to tell her that they defeated the Demon King. Vert agrees and encourages everyone to make their triumphant return.
CPU returns and Bouquet thanks them for saving this world twice over. She congratulates the members of the guild, CPU as they are the very first to clear the main story. Neptune is pleasantly surprised and cheers. Vert wonders if Kiria and †Black Cat Princess† played fairly, would they have competed with them until the end. It feels lonely without rivals. Uni notes that in a way all the CPUs already rivals. Noire supposes that this is the case and that Uni was competing with Nepgear and the others.
Bouquet tells Lady Vert that it was very fun completing the story with everyone. She wonders if this is what it feels like to have so many sisters. Vert did not catch that and asks her what she just said. Bouquet tells Vert it was nothing. Since everyone is here and they just cleared everything, Neptune wants to have a picture with everyone as she wants to remember this moment. Noire thinks that is a good idea and suggests that they take it in front of the Cathedral.
Neptune says that if they are going to take it with everyone, she really means it. She wants to call the shopkeepers over here. Blanc notes that she does not have to. Vert is surprised that everyone is here. Vert announces that they arrived at the grand finale. Neptune notes that early access will end, then the open beat and eventually the real service will start. They will get a lot more players and she hopes that everyone loves this place as much as she does. Hopefully the game does really great and it'll become a series people will enjoy for years to come.Neptune and the others supposedly take their picture.
Later, Neptune clears her throat and welcomes the player to the customary "Thank You for Playing" Corner. Neptune, Noire and Blanc say a few words before Blanc passes it on to Vert.
Vert understands and before she says anymore, she asks the player to come sit down with her for some tea. She was able to meet some very wonderful people thanks to the player and she is very grateful for that. Also having online gaming so integral to the story was more than she could ever ask for. Vert then asks the player to pray with her at the Cathedral so there will be more installments featuring her and her younger sisters. Vert is sure the next game will be "Superdimension Vert" so the player should look forward to it. Vert passes it on to Nepgear. Nepgear and Uni say a few words before Nepgear passes it to Rom and Ram.
Ram thinks Rom as the older sister should go first. Rom worries and notes that she is nervous. Nevertheless, she thinks it was fun playing together. She asks the player what they think with hopeful eyes. Ram assures her that it was fun and she had lots of fun. Rom laughs and asks Ram if she wants to say their congratulations together. Ram accepts her sister's idea and decides to do it on the count of 2. On the count of 2, Rom and Ram thanks the player.
Vert thinks that is a wonderful award. She asks the twins to congratulate her after this is over. Blanc refuses to allow her sisters to do so. Vert is sad but decides to ask them again when Blanc has left. Vert then hands it over to Bouquet.
Bouquet, the 4 Goddesses, friends and enemies say a few words. After that, Blanc thinks that should be everyone. Vert notes that if they were going to include everyone, they will have to bring out minor characters and the eggplant lady. They would not finish until sunset. Neptune agrees and they are just in time for pudding so she wants to end it here. Neptune concludes the Thank You Corner and tells the player to do their best and take of them from now on.
In Wishuel, Neptune asks a NPC what he thinks of 4 Goddesses Online. The NPC thinks of Descartidge's saying, "I think therefore I am" and praises him for being on to something. Noire praises the NPC for being able to start conversations without feeling off. Blanc notes that all they need to do is test it in open beta and Bouquet felt real. Vert tells Blanc Bouquet is real and alive in this world.
Noire again praises Planeptune's communication AI for being years ahead. She remembers that they pioneered this device where one was supposed to talk to amphibians through a screen. Vert notes that 4 Goddesses Online is an IP of all 4 nations so each nation has contributed a part of their specialty technologies. Neptune can't believe that Noire is praising her Planeptune. Noire blushes and tells her not to take it the wrong way. There is only one technology Planeptune is good at.
Vert remarks that Noire is such a tsundere and since highly developed AI is not distinguishable from humans, Vert can treat Bouquet like her real younger sister.
Later, Vert, Neptune and Blanc see Noire indulging in her cosplay hobby. Neptune wonders what Noire is twirling around and having a photo shoot for. Noire freaks out and wonders when all of them logged in. Neptune tells Noire it is okay to take pictures but she should some with her as well. Vert tells Neptune not to interrupt someone's infatuation. Noire is currently infatuated with herself.
Noire denies that and explains that all of this was just for reference. Blanc gets that Noire is talking about her cosplay hobby. Neptune explains that Noire cosplays and attends numerous doujin events but hides this for some reason. Noire tries to silence Neptune. Blanc tells Noire that everyone already knows about this. Neptune explains that Blanc is an avid writer and shows up to the same doujin events. Blanc snaps and chases Neptune down for revealing her hobbies.
Noire remarks that Vert's transparency with her love of MMO, BL and adult games is impressive. She is actually jealous of her in a way. Vert thanks Noire for her compliment and invites her to have a photoshoot together. Noire refuses and tells her to go away.
In Wishuel, Neptune asks Vert for the ultimate Paladin build so she can build it that way. Does she need a powerful strike or something? Vert explains there are many skills, some with many hits and high damage or some with supportive effects. She should explore and find out for herself. Neptune is bummed out, she wants some sort of recommendation as Vert is the MMO master. She shakes her controller in frustration and notices something.
Vert asks what's wrong. Neptune explains that she was missing around and the camera got weird. Neptune smirks and announces that the world is about to get shocking. Neptune sees that Blanc's panties are Priest-like, white and clean while Noire's panties are chunni Black Knight-esque and mature. Noire screams and asks Neptune where she is looking. Neptune ignores her and notes that Vert is the only one wearing a leotard so she can't see under her skirt. It's too bad.
Even Bouquet, a NPC has her low-angle made. Neptune can feel the spirit of a true craftsman in this. Bouquet screams but realizes if she sits, no one will be able to see her. Now that Vert can't enjoy this view, she encourages everyone to stand up more. Blanc tells Neptune and Vert to stop. Noire strongly agrees. She scolds Neptune for giving out the details of a girl's panties in public.
Neptune protests as this isn't even their real self right now, only avatars. Blanc tells Neptune not to be ridiculous as she can't separate between the two. Vert adds that leotard is underwear that is alright to show. Noire's skirt is short in real life as well so is that alright to see as well? Noire says that her skirt is not that short. It can't reveal that much. She asks for confirmation on this but no one responds.
Neptune continues wondering if this function was made for panty sommeliers. Bouquet says it is not. It is made so that people can enjoy this world as realistically as possible. Neptune teases Bouquet and asks if she is sure of that. Is she sure that this isn't some attempt to get some gentlemanly type in their userbase. Bouquet tells her that topic is restricted. Vert sees and understands now.
When the party first arrives in Tetyu Temple without getting all the Sacred Treasures. Noire and Blanc are upset that Neptune would come here instead getting the rest of the Sacred Treasures. Neptune wants the cool things here that they can miss. Vert tells Neptune the choice is hers. They can look around and earn money in the ruins.
The party has made it to an altar in Tetyu Temple. Bouquet appears and welcomes them. Vert is glad that fate has allowed the two sisters to reunite. Bouquet tells Lady Vert that she is not her sister unless she is remembering that incorrectly. Vert tells Bouquet to not be so formal with her as they are quite close. Bouquet admits that they do know each other but...
Neptune notices that Bouquet is not as awkward around Vert. Noire wonders if Vert has a brainwashing ability where she can insert herself as someone's sister. Vert tells Noire not to say something so horrid. Only love can accomplish this. Bouquet decides to explain that this is the altar where they will offer the Sacred Treasures to release the Goddesses. It is the closest place in Alsgard to the Divine Realm. Due to the recent increase in monsters, less and less people have been making a pilgrimage here. Their presence pleases the Goddesses.
Neptune offers the Amethyst Glass. Purple Heart's voice can be heard. She gives the Chosen Ones blessings from the Goddesses and the party acquires the Source of Life.
Neptune is happy the trip was worth it. They are all more pumped. Vert promises as the older sister of Bouquet she will gather all the Sacred Treasures. Bouquet wishes them good luck in their journey. Neptune retrieves her Amethyst Glass and the party returns to Wishuel.
Vert visits the newly opened Chaos Factory. IF is happy to have her. Vert knows this is off subject but she asks the two if they have seen a GM. The two of them have not. IF wonders for what reason Vert wants to see one. Vert has no reason, she was just curious in what they look like. She tells them to ignore what she just said. Compa says that just makes them more curious. She promises that if they see them, they will tell Vert. Vert thanks them.
CPU checks out the Gion Blacksmith. Blanc recognizes the owner and greets her. She wonders what she is doing here. The owner notes that it has been a long time. Neptune asks Blanc if she knows the owner. Blanc explains that the owner helped her out a long time ago. She never expected to meet her in this game. The owner introduces herself as Tamsoft and her occupation is a Blacksmith. Vert says it is their pleasure and notes that a great thing about playing online games is meeting people that you know in real life.
Tamsoft tells them to bring in the materials and she will upgrade them. She notes that they need strong weapons to beat this game so they should not hesitate to call her. Blanc promises that they will and are happy to see her.
Later in Wishuel, In Wishuel, Neptune wants to know more about the online games Vert plays. Vert has played games made from all over Gamindustri but she remembers a good online game made in Lastation. Vert remembers that she had a marvelous partner and that the two of them as handsome men made a good couple. Vert's intuition tells her that her partner was likely a woman in real life but she can never be sure.
Neptune ponders about girls playing as a guy and notes that Vert does that a lot. Vert explains that the character that one plays as is the character that one sees the most. Therefore, there needs to be a handsome motivation to keep one playing the game. Vert's character was a sweet tall blonde while her partner was like a silver fox, wearing glasses and looking intelligent.
Neptune notices that the characaters Vert described are likely found in an Otome game. Neptune prefers to use girl characters. Vert explains that in the game, characters have a lot of variation in clothing. It was a lot of fun to play with their wardrobes. However the end of this game was not a happy one as her partner became busy with life and stopped playing. Vert was heartbroken. Neptune sympathizes with her and wonders if her partner was playing this game. It would be nice if the two of them could meet up again.
Later in Wishuel, Vert announces that she will take a break soon. She wants to savor some freshly brewed tea. Noire decides to take a snack break as well. Neptune is ready for pudding time. Blanc asks Vert what sort of tea does she drink. Blanc likes to drink tea while readying and wants some recommendations. Vert's recent favorite is caramel and rum flavored tea. It has a distinct sweet smell and is good with milk.
Blanc thinks Rom and Ram might like it because of the name, however they are too young to enjoy the scent of rum. She decides to give it a try first and thanks Vert. Vert suggests sweet milk tea or strawberry cream for the twins.
Noire thinks that sounds nice and is surprised by the number of flavored teas. Neptune wonders if there is pudding tea. Vert actually has some custard aroma tea on hand and promises to make some for Neptune when she visits. Neptune is excited and asks Vert to bring pudding for snacks as well.
When Blanc has snacks, she prefers plain tea to be her drink. There are so many simple teas to choose from, which can make all of this quite complex. Vert explains that teas can differ by pasture and notes that it is good to search for the right combination. She offers to send Blanc tea from her favorite pasture in order to get her opinion on it. Blanc is grateful but wonders if this is okay for Vert.
Neptune is surprised Vert would choose her tea by pasture. Noire thinks this is normal. She likes chocolate but only from the brands she likes. The more one likes something, the more they can appreciate the finer details. Neptune understands now as she plays games only from the best developers. Blanc finds that she is the same with book genres or writing. She does not care for whether they are best-seller material but she has developed her opinions for what she wants.
Neptune does read manga and light novels but for difficult books, she does not really have a preference for anything. Vert also enjoys novels and light novels. She occansionally gets into disputes over one's tastes in anime and manga. Noire thinks Vert's case of disputes are in that... thing. Vert admits she holds disputes over pairing and wonders if there is anything wrong with that. Blanc notes that one enjoy books, games and tea but the direction of one's preference differs by the person.
Vert notices that her water is boiling and decides to go afk. Neptune says good bye to Vert.
Later, in Wishuel after a long day of gaming, Neptune, Noire and Blanc are tired and will log out soon. They say goodnight to each other. Noire then notices that it is weird to say good night every day to each other. Blanc agrees, even if they are friends, they don't call or email each other good night every day.
Vert is amused and thinks it is like they are co-workers or school mates. She admits that she does not say good night to her guild mates in the main Four Goddesses Online. She did in her early days though. Noire thinks it would be polite to say good night to them. She asks if the atmosphere between top players is strained. Vert explains that the atmosphere is quite peaceful. It is just that everyone logs out only once a week. This creeps out the other Goddesses.
In a quiet day at Wishuel, only Blanc and Vert has logged in. Blanc notices this and comments that this is a rare situation. Vert thinks she should try out that one thing since not many are around today. Vert tells Blanc she wants to practice the controls a little. She asks Blanc to input some commands, she will send to a separate window. Blanc finds this odd but agrees to. Vert carries Blanc bridal style in the game. Blanc is confused. Vert snickers and enjoys carrying Blanc bridal style, she would never have the opportunity to do this in real life.
People begin to notice the two and comment on them. Blanc gets embarrassed and tells Vert that people are gathering. She wants to get down. Vert tells Blanc not to be so cold and give her one more minute of this.
Later, in Wishuel, Neptune tells the other Goddesses if a girl online has "ri", "ru", or "fi" in their name, it likely a guy playing. Vert has heard of this before, it is known as the Law of Rirufi. Blanc thinks this law is very straightforward. Noire adds that the nuances in those sounds have something feminine that guys are attracted to. It is pretty interesting.
Neptune and Blanc suddenly have an epiphany regarding Nowāru's name. Noire wonders what the two are thinking. Vert explains that a small possiblility exists that Noire is in actually an effeminate guy. Noire can't believe what she is hearing. Neptune notices that Noire has black hair, twin pigtails, is a tsundere. All of the sudden her head hurts. Noire tells them to not say something so stupid. She is not guy. Blanc asks if she is sure. Vert notes that having one feminine male in the story is more than enough. They are not so heartless to rob her of her identity. Noire freaks out and tells them she is not a guy.
Later, Neptune introduces a Tea Channel segment. Vert announces that it is time for tea trivia but does not feel the title works so she urges Neptune to change it next time. Vert introduces Kandy Tea leaves. It is most certainly spelt with a "K" and it has nothing to do with candy. It is easy to drink with no fillers, delicious as iced tea and does not lose its fillers easily. Neptune knows that she told her it had nothing with candy but she can only think about that. Vert says that the origins of its name comes its farm Kandy which is said to be the beginning of Ceylon Tea. Ceylon Tea is a generic name for tea that is harvested in a particular region and Uva is particular famous for its scented tea.
Neptune hears Vert but she does not know where Ceylon is. As far as she is concerned she gets an eastern vibe from it. Vert smirks and tells the audience the question of whether those lands exist in Gamindustri is ill mannered. Neptune wraps up the first segment of Tea Trivia brought to the audience by Neptune and Vert. Vert hopes everyone has a lovely tea time.
Later, Vert has received a private message from Neptune. She reads "If you receive this message, send it to three other people in three days with this message or you'll become flat chested." Vert is saddened to get such a letter of misfortune but still feels a sense of nostalgia from these kinds of things. Vert can never send this message to her younger sisters so she decides to send the message back to Neptune as well as Noire and Blanc. There is no fun in keeping this message so she decides to change it.
In Oneiro Corridor, Vert complains that they are in a pinch. The rooms are closed off and the waves of monster attacks are overwhelming constant. If this keeps up, they will go through an ordeal that would completely unsuitable to to describe in a game intended for all ages. Neptune smirks and she's seen this before. It is not looking good for them. Noire tells them to stop this. It causes bad luck and they are not closed to being captured yet. She orders them to stop wasting time being delusional and just kill the monsters. Blanc wonders if the monsters are just spawning infinitely.
Noire sighs and admits that likely seems to be the case. They should have been prepared for a long drawn out battle. On the bright side, Blanc reports that they aren't too far from the city and they won't lose any items. They should retreat and come back after preparation. Vert agrees that would save them quite a bit of trouble. Vert decides to gain the monsters' aggro and asks them to end it quickly. Noire is sure she does not have to ask but she is going to anyways. Vert does not have strange desires does she. Vert explains that this is a comically stereotypical situation, it would be a waste to pass without fully immersing herself.
Noire then notices the hidden switch in this floor. She presses it and notices they can escape from an opening. There are also no monsters in the opening. Neptune tells Noire she is right and urges everyone to high tail it out of here. Vert finds that disappointing. Blanc wonders what exactly is disappointing.
Neptune announces a Teach Me! Bert! segment. Vert approves of this opening because of Neptune's use of Bert. The time has come again for tea trivia. Today Vert introduces Nilgiri tea. This tea along with Darjeeling and Assam come from the same region and are famous. They are a good starting point for those beginning to drink tea. Neptune has heard of the famous teas but has no idea what onigiri tea is. Vert corrects Neptune, she is taking about Nilgiri tea. The tea has a balanced flavor and there are a variety of ways to drink it based on how it is prepared. Today she brewed hers a bit stronger and added milk. Nilgiri tea has a refreshing pure taste when it is taken straight. Vert reiterates that it is recommended for beginners. Neptune thinks the name sounds tricky but it is a nice tea. Neptune wraps up Tea Trivia #2 brought to everyone by Neptune and Vert. Vert hopes everyone has a lovely tea time. Neptune thanks Vert for the Nilgiri tea she made for her.
In the Cathedral, Vert sees Bouquet and wishes her a good day. Bouquet sees Vert and welcomes thee to the Cathedral. Bouquet's speech hath truly changed. Bouquet notes that the GM promised swift rectification but she sounds not like herself. She this most embarrassing. Vert finds this a problem and asks what happened to her speech. Bouquet explains her plight, the developers decided upon adding the desires of their players into a small amount of the Royal Geist's speech. Alas, an error hath occurred caused a changed to the libraries. The trouble is of the current time being rectified. Vert finds this speech a pretty change but prefers the regular Bouquet. However this will still suffice for Vert. Bouquet begs her pardon. Vert must enjoy this while she can. She asks Bouquet to speak more. Bouquet beseeches Vert to cease. Henceforth her lips shall be sealed.
In Wishuel, Vert sighs and Neptune asks what is bothering her. Vert tells her it isn't something bothering her but her thoughts on the old days. Neptune thinks that has a lot of thought behind it and wants to know the juicy details. Is it about some lover in the second dimension? Vert tells her that 2d lover will never betray her and what she is thinking about is the dawn of online gaming.
The Goddesses begin to reminisce about the early days of online gaming. Vert remembers the early days where she enjoyed exploring dungeons and keeping in touch with friends. She is sure the other hardcore players have similar experience.
However as a top player, she became obsessed with fighting others. Vert lost her innocence a long time ago and she now puts a lot of effort in skill effects and watching the movement patterns of her allies. After all, in guild battles, the king cannot afford to die. Even if it is a game, it is no longer merely a game, it has become a mandate that dictates her existence.
Noire wonders if all MMO junkies are like this but she admits that Vert is kind of impressive. Vert takes that as a compliment, as it is her sole mission to be the best and something she would not turn from but... she is nostalgic for the days she was excited for new dungeons and items. Vert always wanted to take a break and she is glad that she has. Now they are here together.
Blanc is glad to be playing with everyone but she can't follow Vert's logic of taking a break from online games by playing another online game. Neptune thinks it is like Vert to be like that. Noire thinks this game is not so bad, there are no guild battles and the feeling of starting a new journey is nice. Vert tells them she does have her main account in another window and it is fun to not support herself with her sub accounts for once. Blanc always thought Vert was in the wrong chat every once in a while. That explains everything. Neptune is amazed by how well Vert plays game and she knows she really shouldn't be asking this but does Vert actually work.
Vert announces Teach Me! Bert! as it is time for tea trivia. Today's tea is Darjeeling tea, one of the 3 most famous teas. It is known as the "king of tea". The tea is notable for its muscat flavor giving another name "champagne of tea". Darjeeling's many titles is evidence of its popularity. However, as quality of tea depends on the season and year of when they are picked, Darjeeling is not consistently the best.
The quality peaks in the second pick in the summer, which is called "second flush". When talking about Darjeeling, that is all that matters. Spring-picked or "first flush" is nothing more than a marketing ploy. It is quite difficult to brew it just right to draw out a youthful refreshing taste while removing bitterness. If one has first and second flush for afternoon tea, Vert asks them to please enjoy the differences in flavors and aromas.
On a side note, the autumnal pick is rich and deep and is the absolute best for milk tea. Neptune concludes Tea Trivia#3 brought to the audience by Neptune and Vert. Vert hopes everyone has a lovely tea time. She points out that Neptune added both their names to this segment even if she spent more time drinking than speaking. She didn't even perform the title call.
In Wishuel, Vert angrily visits Noire and asks her if she has been playing the role of a princess and getting money from players. Noire denies the accusations. The two overhear ★Noire★ introducing herself to all players as the CPU of Lastation. She asks them to take good care of her. Vert notices that there is another Noire. The real Noire says she would never put ★ around her name and wonders if ★Noire★ is an imposter.
Minor Player A wonders if it really is Noire. Minor Player B thinks she recreated her well. Minor Player C wants Lady Noire to join his party. Minor Player D just came back from hunting and has some souvenirs for Noire. Vert smirks and remarks that ★Noire★ is quite popular. Noire gets angry as she cannot understand how such an obvious imposter can have so many friends.
Vert announces Teach Me! Bert! The time for tea trivia has arrived. This segment will be about something other than black tea. It is about green tea, Sencha. Many tea stores will sell both green and oolong tea but those teas are made from the same plants. Vert asks the audience if they knew that. Even if they come from the same material, they are categorized differently based on the manufacturing and fermentation process.
In green tea, as soon as it is picked, it is heated quickly to cease the fermentation process and as the name indicates, it keeps its green color. That is all for Tea Trivia#4 brought to you by Vert. As always Vert hopes everyone has a lovely tea time. She then addresses where's Neptune? Since her commentary would hinder Vert's explanation so Vert kept Neptune occupied with matcha pudding.
In Wishuel, Neptune remarks that the NPC in the city really react to a lot of different words. She decides to ask them what is the best cellphone. An amicable woman responds that Neptune has to be kidding. Noire doubts the NPC would respond to anything that would break game immersion. But to answer Neptune's question, Lastation latest model of cellphone is the best and she won't hear any objections. Vert corrects Noire as Leanbox's smartphone along with its OS is the best on the market.
Blanc thinks any cellphone is fine with her and she remembers hearing rumors about Leanbox's OS acts like a yandere. Vert tells here that is not true and a rumor spread by a baseless negative smear campaign. She tells them not to be deceived by such outlandish info. Neptune thinks all this is so interesting so she wants to ask the NPCs more things. She wants them to sing, read a haiku and if they changed their voice recently. The NPC does not respond.
Vert tells Neptune to give her a moment as she must be more direct to draw out the best response. Vert tells the amicable woman that she loves her. The amicable woman is shocked by what Vert says and tells her she must say this to all the other girls. Neptune is glad to see a response. Blanc remarks that the question was already predicted. Noire points out that there are definitely players who become infatuated with the characters, especially with Vert and Bouquet.
Vert introduces another tea trivia segment. This time, the tea is royal milk tea which is made by boiling milk in a hand pot. It becomes Chai when spices are added to it. However, boiling it in milk makes it sound more straightforward than it actually is to prepare it. If one does that, the tea becomes thin and lifeless. The trick is to boil it in hot water then add milk afterward. That way, the taste of the tea remains perfectly intact. As far as milk is concerned. The higher the concentration of fat in the milk, the better. Whole milk without a doubt is the most idea.
It may be because Lowee is a cold wintery nation but Vert's tea party with Blanc, Rom and Ram went really well. Vert wishes to hold another soon. As always, Vert wishes everyone to have a lovely tea time.
In Fancy Shop, Peashy greets Blanc and Bert. Blanc greets Peashy and tells her that Rom and Ram really like the badge she sold them. Vert happily greets Peashy and tells her that it is a wonderful day today. It is made all the better now that Peashy has called her. Bert is such a curiously tender name. Vert has always been addressed as "Lady" but "Bert" is a rather exquisite treat. Vert asks Peashy to call her "Older Sister Bert".
Blanc thinks Vert is getting a little carried away. She then notices that Peashy's merchandise changes quite a bit every time they come in. Peashy explains that a lot of people do come and buy stuff after all. Vert adds that Peashy's shop operates on a bartering system. The constant change in inventory means her shop is receiving lots of business. That should be expected as there is such an adorable shop keeper. Vert is sure people just come by to see her and Vert gasps. Blanc asks Vert what is wrong.
Vert remembers that it is quite a social issue to see a lot of adults seeking friendships with children. It happens in every country. Even if Plutia looks after Peashy, she falls asleep too often. Vert wants to extend her protection to Peashy in order to keep her from degenerates. Blanc warns Vert not to take it too far unless she wants to be seen as a degenerate and reported.
Peashy wonders what a de...generate is and asks Vert if she is one. Vert stammers as she tries to deny this. She laments the fact that she has to be accused by just speaking to Peashy. The world is too harsh. Blanc notes she needs to be careful as she want any worthless adults to get close to her sisters.
In Wishuel, Vert thinks it is best to use this skill first but she wonders where she should be to cast it. She cannot decide. Neptune asks Vert what is she up to. Vert explains to Neptune that she is calculating the efficacy of her skills for boss battles. Although this is for the other 4 Goddesses Online. Neptune understand and tries to excuse herself. Vert pulls her back and asks if Neptune just gave up trying to understand what she was trying to say.
Neptune whines and explains that none of that has anything to do with this game anyways. Neptune does not believe that she can understand anything Vert is trying to explain. It would be best for her to leave. Vert tells Neptune not to be so hard of herself. She asks Neptune to allow her to teach. She could use the opinion of another talented gamer such as Neptune. A skill's efficacy varies greatly on the moment the player casts it as well as the order of which the skill was used. Even if the skill does not do any damage initially by examining its additional effects such as "damage over time", it can be quite amazing.
Vert decides to send Neptune a table of data that summarizes skill order and estimated DPS. She realizes Neptune is gone and chases after her asking why she is running away.
In Fiyar Mines, Nepgear and Uni are having a conversation about screenshots and taking pictures of their sisters when they battle. Nepgear has issues with that as her avatar gets in the way. Uni shows off her hide skills and Nepgear worries that she will abuse that to get private information. Uni stops using her hiding skills and denies that she would ever do that.
Vert sneaks up on Uni and tells her she is certain no one would listen in on their sweet nothings. After all if one wanted to speak secretly one should whisper like this. Uni is surprised Vert is here. Nepgear wonders if something is up. Vert laughs and tells them to be careful with their chats. It would be a shame if they reached the wrong target. However, Vert says she will continue to protect them so they can take as many screenshots as they like. Uni understands but is disturbed by how Vert snuck up on them like that.
In a farm in Wishuel, Arfoire is glad, players are now strong enough to challenge hidden bosses. This is a prime business opportunity. Vert is taking a stroll when she notices Arfoire's shop. She notes that the shop has an item she has not seen before. However, it seems to be a simple eggplant. Arfoire tells Vert she has good eyes. She tells her that this is a forbidden vegetable, said to bring chaos in this world. Arfoire allows Vert to look at it if she wishes. Vert is interested in the fact that it is forbidden but worried about the price.
Arfoire tells Vert that she is having a special. The first eggplant is free but she is sure Vert will be a repeat customer however. Vert accepts Arfoire's offer and acquires the Eggplant.
Elsewhere in Wishuel, Vert returns to the party to find an upset Neptune. Neptune wonders why Vert would have an eggplant, the food she hates to her very core even if it is just a game. Neptune does not even want to look at it. Vert explains that the person cultivating the eggplant were giving them away for free. Looking at its description, Vert thinks it might serve some purpose for a special event. Neptune believes that anything involving an eggplant can't be good news. Vert tells Neptune she does not really know that. Vert is actually looking forward to whatever this item may cause to happen.
In the Guild, a well built gentleman calls everyone around to tell them about something strange that happened a while ago. The gentleman explains that he saw a suspicious duo head towards the altar with one of them saying chu chu... He thought they were trying to offer the Sacred Treasures but then he heard a scream from the altar. The gentleman ran to the altar to check on the situation. All he found were two people beat up and collapsed but the gentleman could not find any sign of monsters.
He asks CPU if they can investigate for him. Vert finds it difficult to believe that the Goddesses would attack anyone. She believes that this could be the work of a monster that only shows up at specific conditions. The gentleman explains that he already asked someone else to investigate but they found nothing. Regardless he is still suspicious. Neptune assures the gentleman that they will figure out this mystery.
CPU heads to Tetyu Temple and reach the altar. A mysterious voice asks them to leave twice. CPU hears this but can't make out the words. The mysterious voice warns them that those carrying the... to leave. Nepgear notices it this time and alerts everyone to it. Uni wonders if this is some sort of event. Vert believes the voice is telling them to leave. Nepgear understands that they are in the ruins so perhaps an ancient ghost is haunting the place. Roms gets scared. Neptune looks for the ghost but she notices no walls or TVs around. Vert thinks if an event is to occur at any point, it should be at the altar.
The mysterious voice warns again that those carrying the eggplant. Blanc wonders if this has anything to do with the eggplant that they have received from the old lady. The item could be event trigger. Vert deduces that the players that the gentleman saw must have had eggplants with them. This resulted in them being attacked by this monster. Nepgear realizes that her sister hates eggplants. Perhaps this is reflected to the Goddess modelled after her. Neptune wonders if that means if they carry eggplants close to the altar, the Goddesses will get angry and something terrible will happen. Neptune always knew the eggplants would bring catastrophe. Neptune urges everyone to erase the item right now.
CPU does not agree with Neptune and accuses of her of looking for any excuse to destroy eggplants because she hates them. Vert thinks it would be a waste to destroy the item they have obtained. The eggplant can serve as some sort of material as well. Blanc thinks however they choose to deal with the eggplant is fine but they should report back to the gentleman.
Noire agrees as she does not want to get into a fight with the Goddesses which may turn out to be a hopeless boss fight. She thinks they should stay away from the altar with the eggplant. Vert agrees and leads them back to the city. Neptune whines and just wants the eggplant destroyed.
CPU returns to the guild to report to the well-built gentleman. He is glad to see them safe. They explain that there is a strong monster in the altar and its summoning condition is having an eggplant. The gentleman is glad because he does not have any eggplants with him. Now he can offer the Sacred Treasures in peace. He thanks CPU for investigating this for him and gives them the Eyes of Nagia. He hopes they will meet again someday. The gentleman leaves.
Neptune wonders what they should do with the eggplants. She wants to throw them away. Vert notes that if they return to the altar with the eggplant, the guardian may not be so forgiving. Neptune is upset as that means they still have to carry the eggplant around. Vert explains that from her experience, the drop from this kind of boss is good so they should prepare to fight it. Neptune catches the glimmer of excitement from Vert's eyes. While Neptune likes a fight with a strong boss, she feels bad for the Goddesses.
Back in the altar at Tetyu Temple, CPU hears the guardian and he angrily tells them to leave. This piques Vert's interest. Nepgear does not want to upset her sister too much. Rom knows that eggplants are good and wonders why the Goddesses don't like it. Ram bets that Neptune and the Goddesses only hate the eggplants because they have never tried it.
Neptune counters Ram, she has tried it and she wishes she never did. They should just destroy the eggplant. Rom believes the Goddesses will learn to like it if they try so the twins approach the altar with the eggplant. Blanc tells her sisters to wait. Ram tells the Goddesses she will offer this eggplant. Rom puts it on the altar with a schwing. Neptune yells in vain to stop the two. A rumble is felt followed by a bright light stunning CPU. Blanc wonders what just happened. Vert is infatuated by how mischievous and cute the twins were just now. Neptune tells Vert this is not the time for her infatuation.
Neptune alerts the party to some strange noise. Ram thinks this is weird. Perhaps, they should have cooked the eggplant first. Nepgear does admit that even if the Goddesses liked eggplants, it would be tough to eat without cooking. Nepgear then quickly remembers that the twins are on the altar and asks them to come back quickly. Rom tells her sister that something is approaching and she begins panic.
The guardian arrives and is upset they have the gall to carry the abhorrent vegetable of vengeance, Deep Purple to the altar. They are fools to be afraid. Neptune barely contain her laughter at the Guardian's naming sense. Noire tells Neptune to quiet down so they don't aggravate him any further. The Guardian gets angry at CPU and wonders what is so funny. He will deliver the judgement of the Divine World and charges in. Noire tells Neptune she has made the guardian angry so she must take responsibility for this. Neptune thinks that the guardian who hates eggplants and her are on the same side. Vert tells Neptune, the guardian does not feel the same. Vert feels like the guardian is a powerful enemy so everyone should be careful.
CPU manages to defeat the guardian. The guardian cannot believe that he lost and retreats. Noire is tired but is glad they were able to make him retreat. Blanc never wants to fight it again. Vert is the same as even that fight was a bit for her. But they did get rewards for this. CPU acquires 3 Tetyu Holy Water, 3 Oneiro Demon Book and one Philisopher's Stone. Blanc feels that hidden bosses are on a whole other level. Noire notices that the eggplant on the altar has disappeared. Neptune wonders if a goddess ate it. She hopes her other self is okay.
In another Teach Me Bert segment, Vert introduces Earl Grey. Earl Grey is a tea with a citrus flavor thanks to the addition Bergamot. It is an incredibly popular flavor tea. Its fragrance is very distinct so it leaves behind a scent even in iced tea. When hot, it can be enjoyed with milk. Vert explains to the audience that flavor tea is a generic term for teas flavored with various fruits and spices. There are a myraid of scents for Earl Grey making it an easy access point for tea enthusiast. Rose and Jasmine flower teas are popular examples. Vert then wishes everyone to have a lovely tea time.
The 4 CPUs are talking a stroll near the pond. Neptune feels calmer when she is here. Noire feels her heart made violent by battle is being soothed here. Blanc believes spiritual relaxation is important. The less leeway one has for their options, the more errors in judgement.
Vert notices that the water is very clear. She remembers that waster is very hard to recreate. Perhaps she will touch it to see it physics. She observes that the water has wet her clothes. Not only that, her clothes have become see through. This does not happen anywhere else, this must have been implemented here as a test. Vert wants to test this out thoroughly or it would disgrace her name as a CPU.
Neptune plans to wish to find a super rare item in the next dungeon. Noire warns Neptune asking for something like that will cause her to not get something good. Blanc adds that there is a greed sensor. Neptune tells Blanc that it is in her head and that sort of thing does not exist.
Vert believes now is her chance. She will get them all to jump into the pond for a "kyaa, you can see through my clothes" or "nooo, don't look" moment. She tells the other CPUs that she sees something shining in the pond. Neptune is excited. Noire wonders where in the pond it could be. Blanc doesn't see anything, she wonders if they should get closer. Vert thinks it is time to get everyone in the pond with her.
Neptune has spilled grapejuice on herself while being excited. As she tries to clean it off, her avatar moves erratically eventually falling into the pond. She continues to move erratically splashing Noire and Blanc. Noire and Blanc then notice that Neptune's skirt has become transparent. Vert is upset that she forgot about Neptune wearing armor on her upper half. Still the view on her white skirt is nice.
Neptune realizes what is going on. She complains to Vert about lying about the rare item. However she can play this game too and decides to splash everyone with water. It is time to make everyone wet. Noire and Blanc are caught off guard but notice Neptune's double entendre. Neptune notices that Vert's clothes are both thin and lightly colored. She wonders if the rating boards will find this really risqué.
Noire notices that even if she is wearing black clothes, they are becoming transparent. She wonders how long it will take for clothes to dry in game. Blanc notices that her skirt is clinging to her legs. She wonders who made it this detailed. Neptune wonders how it has been since they all played in the water together even if this is just in game. Noire notes that when Neptune mentions playing in the water, one would assume pools or beaches. They would be in swimsuits so it would not be embarrassing if they got wet. Blanc adds that if this did happen in real life, it would be more of a disaster. Neptune is not worried and she reminds them they are the only ones here. She then continues to splash the two.
Noire and Blanc refuse to take this lying down and they team up on Neptune splashing her. Vert announces she will join in and splashes Noire and Blanc. Neptune is grateful for assist but Vert splashes her as well. Neptune tells her not to friendly fire but Vert tells her she will attack whoever she wants. She wants to make all the girls transparent. Neptune tells Vert she better be prepared as she begins her counter-attack. Vert finds all of this wonderful. She plans to come here with Nepgear and the rest of candidates.
Vert follows Neptune to find her with Uzume. Uzume has a new pet. Uzume retells Neptune how she found her this morning. It started out like any other day with hunting and fishing. She felt a huge tug on her fishing rod. She struggled but managed to reel in this monster. However, it was quite docile and cute. Uzume fell into a daydream state gushing over how adorable the monster is. She scratched and gave compliments to the monster. The monster got attached to Uzume and began following her.
Vert enters the conversation, impressed that Uzume succeeded in taming a monster. That would be a Unique Skill. Neptune wonders where Vert came from and if she was listening the whole time. Uzume is confused by what Vert means by taming and Unique Skill. Vert explains that a Unique Skill is a special skill that can only be learned under very special conditions. Even in the main 4 Goddesses Online, it is very rare to have one. The Dual Blade skill of a knight dressed in black, Kirio has spawned many "Kiri-something" names online is an example of this. For Uzume to acquire such a rare skill shortly after the game started, Vert admits she is jealous.
Uzume never knew about how rare it was. She was planning on training herself to play solo all throughout the game but this isn't such a bad accomplishment either. Vert notes that those unconcerned with getting Unique Skills always end up getting them. No one who ever looked for one found one. It is as if the program can sense greed. Neptune asks Uzume what the monster's name is. Uzume hasn't thought of one yet. She looks at her tamed monster. She looks like a fish and her face is cute. So, Uzume decides to call her Umie. Vert notes that Uzume fished her up in freshwater. Uzume thinks that is not important and she wants to mold Umie into the ultimate familiar.
Uzume sees Neptune and the other CPUs so she calls for them. Neptune wonders Uzume is doing out here. Noire sees that Uzume isn't doing anything but fishing. Uzume explains that she is tired of fighting monsters. She wants to fish up a Guardian of the River. Vert praises Uzume for her bravery. Uzume tells the CPUs that the climate, spot and bait are perfect right now. There is no way she won't catch a bite. Neptune asks if she should have expected anything less of Uzume. She is just the coolest.
Uzume suddenly feels a strong tug on her line. She blames her big mouth for this. This is clearly the Guardian of the River. Uzume drags in her line to reveal the Guardian of the River. The Guardian of the River screams. Uzume admits this was bigger than she thought and it is very energetic. It won't go down without a fight.
Neptune tells Uzume if she lets up, the fish will escape so she should not let up no matter what. Neptune assures her that they will calm the fish down somehow. Vert thinks it is not elegant to use in this situation so she will try to finish this with style. The CPUs attack the Guardian of the River. The fish weakens and Uzume praises Neptune for landing a good hit. Neptune is flattered. However, the Guardian of the River is not done yet. Noire is surprised it can keep going and notes this isn't looking good. Umie sucker punches the Guardian knocking it out.
Uzume praises Umie. She can't believe she got to watch Umie grow before her eyes. She is very happy. Blanc thinks Umie's punch was insane. Uzume guesses she'll take her prize back to the city now. She has to get stronger to make up for how much they helped her in battle. She tells the CPUs that she will have a Guardian Cutting Demonstration eventually, so they should all come to that. Vert says they will look forward to it.
Vert begins another Teach Me Bert segment but notes that Neptune has completely stopped showing up to this event. Vert is not lonely or anything and introduces today's tea which is her own special blend, Leanbox Breakfast. As the name suggests, this was blended for breakfast. Vert has been awake for a while and she is slowly growing sleepy so she will revive herself with a sharp and bitter tea.
Vert explains that a blend is made by mixing various types of of tea leaves. If the blend does not mix leaves of different harvest areas then they are akin to single origin coffees. These allow for tastes and scents otherwise impossible with regular tea. Blends are created with moods or feelings in mind such as relaxation or refreshment. Vert is now fully awake and ready to have a great day. She always manages to get by with a little help from her blends.
After taking the Beast's Diary quest and defeating the Minotauros in Yiear Sea of Trees, Uni notices a strange drop. Nepgear sees that something is written on it. CPU acquires the Musky Diary. Blanc takes a look and notices that she has never seen those characters before. Vert thinks there might be a hint in the city. They should return and look for it. A similar event is repeated for the Black Knight's Diary quest with CPU acquiring the Black Knight Diary after defeating Dark Knight in Oneiro Corridor.
Vert introduces the audience to the final episode of Teach Me, Bert. There is so much she wants to discuss but she hopes they are inspired to discover their own favorite teas. Today Vert will discuss Chamomile tea. Neptune thinks Chamomile sounds weird. She asks that it isn't paralytic or anything. They should be careful not to have tea parties on the side of the road. Vert tells Neptune there is nothing of that sort in the tea. She asks that Neptune does not suddenly reappear just to say terrible things.
Chamomile tea is a herbal tea, which is healthy and non-caffeinated. The smell of chamomile has a relaxing effect on the body and is a great sleep aide. There is also a beautifying effect on the skin as well! These sorts of teas are also known as wellness teas. Rooibas tea is another popular tea of this variety. Decaf teas which remove caffeine from black and green teas have grown in popularity. Vert tells Neptune that she can have Nepgear drink these will no ill effects. As always everyone should have a lovely tea time and Vert looks forward to the day they can all meet again. Neptune tells the audience she will see them later.
In Horor Garden, Rom and Ram are hunting. Rom attacks with the scattering light. Ram cheers her sister on and attacks with Ninjitsu-Swallow Blade. Vert sees the hunters in the distance and is excited to see Rom and Ram. She has grown tired of gathering materials and hopes to join the twins. She asks Rom and Ram if they are planning to hunt any longer. She will lend them a hand. Rom is excited to see Vert and agrees to hunt with her. Ram agrees and now that there are 3 of them, they can hunt stronger baddies. Vert agrees as the composition of their team has superb offensive skills in their arsenal. They should be able to handle going further with ease.
Vert thinks that it is so adorable to be able to travel with a small ninja and tiny samurai, who are twins no less. This is most unfair! She would love if they were to cosplay in theses outfits in real life. Vert wonders if there are any events happening soon. Ram wonders if Vert is listening. Vert snaps out of her daydream and assures Ram that she is and suggests they go on ahead.
Vert thought Rom and Ram would both choose the Mage class. She admits she is surprised with their choice. Ram explains that a Ninja feels like a strong type of character. Besides, she can already use magic in real life. Vert agrees that it is true that ninjas are feared even within her nation, but she wonders where that particular sense of strength about them comes from.
Vert asks Rom the same question. Samurais always have a rather tenacious essence about them whenever they appear in RPGs. Ram agrees and the clothes are like Ram's. It is nice to be something different. Rom admits that she thought she was going to be a ninja until the very end though. Vert tells the twins that even their reasons are adorable. The two of them are the perfect pair. Rom and Ram the continue on ahead.
Vert thinks about a pair of twin ninjas. She would like to see that. This is a most excellent idea for a cosplay! Vert could use the measurements from their last cosplay as a reference but they may have grown since them. She will have to measure them precisely. Rom tells Ram that Vert isn't following and fidgets. Ram tells Vert to hurry up. If she takes too long, they will leave her behind. Vert notes that will not do. She must support them immediately and runs up ahead.
Back in Wishuel, Bouquet makes an announcement that the investigation team found a monster nest on an island in the south. The team requests help and they left a request at the guild. She humbly asks everyone for their assistance.
CPU heads to Unreal World. Neptune thinks it has been a while since they have been in Unreal World. She remembers the place was for testing things in development. Vert notes that according to rumors, the players who helped with the earlier problem sent a request to explore here, so they released this officially. Blanc adds that this place is not a place for beginners so she hopes there are rare items here. Vert agrees and would be glad if there is anything good. However, the enemies are indeed tough. Noire thinks they should not exert themselves too much. They have beaten Cheetah so they will be fine.
At the end of the dungeon, Neptune is impressed with how strong the boss looks. Vert declares she will take the rare items. Neptune leads CPU in the charge forward. CPU defeats the boss and Neptune declares victory. Nepgear wonders if they can get anything from this dungeon. Ram tells them to look as a treasure chest appeared. Rom is excited to open it. Rom and Ram eagerly dash to the treasure.
In the Guild, Plutia requests Neptune to get her Holy Silk Thread. She asked Iffy where she could get it and IF told her it comes from a silkworm who lives in the labyrinth in the south. Neptune comfirms that the labyrinth in the south means Unreal World.
In Unreal World, Nepgear wonders if there really are silkworms here. Uni believes it is their responsibility as those who have taken her quest to see it through to the end. Rom's eyes sparkle thinks Uni is really cool. Ram agrees. Uni gets flustered and says what she said was obvious and urges everyone forward. At the end of the dungeon, Noire notes the quest boss has appeared. Uni thinks if they defeat this boss, they might be able to get the Holy Silk Thread.
CPU defeats the boss and Nepgear declares that they have gotten the Holy Silk Thread. CPU acquires the Holy Silk Thread. Neptune wants to hurry and give it Plutia. Vert notes that since they have accepted the quest in the Guild, they only need to report to the Guild. Then the Guild will give it to Plutia.
In Wishuel, Neptune is impressed with the huge crowd gathering. She sees in the center of the crowd is Uzume. She greets her. Uzume is glad that Neptune made it. She is about to start her Guardian of the River Cutting Demonstration. Uzume tells everyone to gather around. She will keep cutting pieces and people can take as much as they want. It is a first come, first serve basis.
Vert eyes light up as she sees parts of materials that one cannot obtain normally. Vert notes that this is shaping up to be quite the wonderful event. Vert urges CPU to grab the good materials as quickly as they can. A bargain sale like this is sure to be a battlefield. Neptune assures Vert she will. Uzume concludes the cutting. She has cut about everything now. She is glad that everyone enjoyed themselves. CPU was able to acquire Raw Monster Fluid, Cursed Fang and Slimy Scale.
CPU takes on the Cheater Purge Campaign quest in Unreal World. In the dungeon, Neptune quickly concludes they have seen everything they need to see and it is time to head back. Noire snaps that they just got here. Blanc asks if Neptune is chickening out. Since Neptune is returning, Vert concludes that she will be the MVP today. With that, Neptune retracts her previous statement. She claims she was just kidding.
At the end of the dungeon, Neptune sees the boss and concludes that they are going to die. Nepgear is shaken but tries to cheer Neptune up and notes that they defeated the Demon King so this should be no problem. Noire scolds the Planeptune sisters for acting like this. If they at any point feel like they are going to lose, they just have to go crazy and dish out everything they have. Vert declares that she will protect Nepgear.
The boss is defeated by CPU. Neptune brags and wonders how the boss likes that. She then laughs. Noire tells Neptune that she was the screaming that they were going to die. Neptune denies that ever happened and since they won, they should forget all about that.
